The New Year 2010

by Neal Whitman

The New Year

For those of you who have been on this site for a full year, you already know that there are five seasons in the Japanese calendar. So, here is our New Year haiku. This feature is not the time, nor the place, for Politics. But, please forgive me if I share that I feel in sympathy with those who think the old decade was the worst since World War II. This haiku is looking back. Not to worry: soon enough spring rain will prepare the ground for new growth.

the year ends
