_________________________ HAIKU SPRING ________________________

 Son and grandson explore the Matapouri estuary today.

Where does he wander 
I wonder,
my little one,
                    hunting Dragonflies?       -  Chiyo

 Iconic Aotearoa New Zealand holiday 'bach' at Matapouri.

No bold rain - cloud for 
a hundred miles
around ... dares
                        brave the peonies.           -  Buson
 
Iconic view from the iconic Matapouri 'bach'.

The seashore temple
incoming rollers
 flow in time
                       to the holy Flute.         -  Buson
 
The photographer, aka the old bugger, hobbles along behind carrying his Crocs.

My dear pilgrim hat,
you must
accompany me
                      to view the plum trees.          Basho
