Doesn’t this beautiful photo of apple blossoms on orange background lift one’s spirit?  One more day of NaPoWriMo challenge to write 30 poems in 30 days!  A lot of mine were haiku/haiga  🙂

Plum blossoms, ume-no-hana, are frequent haiku theme and signal the end of winter (source: Carpe Diem Haiku Kai).

thrives beside the salty sea

raises pom-pom cheers
