Wind stunted tree at the edge of Lake Superior

I am feeling somewhat like this tree tonight: hanging in there and getting the job done, and maybe just a little battered.

And then there was this street tree on one of the daily walks we managed this week. As a harbinger of spring, it has managed to put out blossoms right at the trunk! So I need to think about blossoming where you have been planted. It's been an odd day.

Quite a while back, Issa wrote an early spring haiku. This is the David Lanoue translation from his Haiku Guy website:

spring begins
as it has deigned to do
for a thousand ages


Well, yes. . .
