Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
What a joy it is to create a new episode of our wonderful Haiku Kai. This month it's all about modern and classical kigo (seasonwords) for spring. Today I have chosen a nice modern kigo extracted from Jane Reichhold's "A Dictionary of Haiku". Today it's 'hail' what you need to use and maybe you can bring in a kind of love as Jane did in one of her haiku examples:
hail falls between us
she buttons her blouse

What a wonderful kigo this is ... and what a wonderful haiku Jane has created, Isn't it a extraordinary haiku? To bring the hardness of hail in a love scene. Jane was really a great haiku poetess.
the sound of hail
mixed with the warmth of love
I kiss my love
|Hail (I couldn't retrieve the owner of this image)|
