Write a haibun that alludes to pressure.
The time is approaching quickly when my husband and I will take the first trip of the year to our forest camp. With fingers crossed we’ll ride anxiously to our happy place in the woods. Our annual jitters will be a mixture of excitement and apprehension over what we may find there as the winter weather pressures on our structures have on occasion caused some damage in the past. No doubt the quaint forest landscape will just be awakening and will be suffering from a case of ‘bed head’ from its tumultuous hibernation.
Clearing fallen branches (possibly trees), restacking stonewalls, and raking rotted leaves will be our first order of business. Meanwhile the earliest ferns and wildflowers will secretly rejoice from our efforts.
Only in a week or two, they’ll most certainly be greeting us in our arrivals donning their new Spring attire.
Spring sprouts nudged by warmth,
Frozen earth gently softens.
“Wake up and get dressed!”

Lucky you, being out in a spring forest!
It is a soul-satisfying time for sure. Thanks.
Here in the South spring has arrived. Tulips and daffodils are thriving and trees are lush and green.
That’s heartwarming to hear! In northwestern Massachusetts and eastern New York State, Spring takes its sweet time. The upside of that is the joy found in the small clues it provides as it creeps in rather than the ‘leap’ Southerners see.
Here the daffs are over, the tulips are out but the trees are only just coming into leaf. The slow explosion has started though.
I long so much for spring this year… it’s really hard when winter just has returned.
Just a temporary setback. Spring may come out with great force because of that. Thanks!
A spring forest retreat… just the medicine needed to ease the pressure!
😁 Definitely! Thanks.
You are so lucky. Here is warm& hot. The slow explosion has started though .
I’m not happy when there’s a lot of heat. It takes getting used to.
What to get use?
If I were transported to a hotter climate, it would take time for me to feel comfortable. I’m used to cooler temperatures. 🙂
Ohh. It’s very good you Suggest to me.
