whiff fills the silence

My contribution today is a haiku.

Today is Day 2 of NaPoWriMo where poets post an original poem as part of writing a poem a day for 30 days in the month of April..following a theme or prompt. Or not.


Meanwhile, over at the A to Z Challenge where poets post an original poem,  today the letter in focus are words starting with the letter B

For the amazing list of well over 1000 poets go here:

For a while


for a while in spring
falling blossoms make a mess
berries on the way
