thinking easter and family (and baseball haiku)

Filed under: Haiku or Senryu,q.s. quickies — David Giacalone @ 7:11 am

momEaster54s – The f/k/a Gang is going to spend Easter Sunday in Rochester, NY, with our haiga collaborators Mama and Arthur G., and other beloved relatives. (Find some Easter memories and haiku here.) Of course, when we think of Rochester and family, we also think of Tom and Sarah Painting [see painting & painting: mount hope haiku], who — like the Calabash, NC , branch of our family — are also surely contemplating Opening Day and the new baseball season. I’ve got to hit the road, so I’ll just leave you with a few haiku and best wishes for Easter, Spring and all the new seasons.

BaseballHaikuCover Can’t wait for opening day? Check out the f/k/a baseball haiku page, and our posts featuring the book Baseball Haiku (Cor van den Heuvel and Nanae Tamura, eds., W.W. Norton Press, April 2007) — such as here, there, here; and told you all about the book back in January, here.

Speaking of baseball, family and the coming of spring, here’s a treat from Ed Markowski:

snowflakes tumble & curve baseballdiamond
the baseball season
begins today

April rain
my grandson practices
his infield chatter

April snow
the home team falls
7 games back
