haiku retrospective lxxi

I have a heavy heart now every day I come to post haiku. Should I continue my little retrospective when the Japanese people are suffering so deeply?

But perhaps it is one little thing I can do to honor the Japanese people in this difficult time, to share my appreciation for this Japanese art form.

Right now, each haiku is a prayer for Japan.

gray scale ~
the distant treetops
against the clouds

scrubbed sky-
swallows swoop above the greening hills
