a golden blaze

My response to Carpe Diem #1636 California poppy (modern kigo)

Today’s modern kigo for spring has been taken from Jane Reichhold’s  Dictionary of Haiku, section spring, sub-section plants: it’s ‘California poppy’.

The haiku example was created by Jane Reichhold and she used it as an example for this modern kigo:

expanding the warmth
the first poppies
in spring sunshine
