Today is also ending--
at the bottom of the snowstorm
the gigantic sun


spring-like morning -
the hedge
sings for all its worth

By the way, you don't need spring-like if you don't want it. It's now Spring in Ireland, which is only next door to you. ;-)



I'd post a different version of this in the Spring section:

spring morning -
the hedge
sings for all its worth

Or another word or kigo for Spring in the first line.

It's that last two lines which are absolutely magical and memorable.
