haiku retrospective cxciii

Often, my haiku arise in response to the work of other authors. On the shiki haiku list, haijin would riff off of each other's work. The second haiku in this set was in response to a series of spring haiku about tree frogs.

spring cold
trying to get the frog
out of my throat

gray afternoon
an open suitcase
full of summer clothes
