    Please read Ravi’s excellent poetic response to the word prompt “first.”

    (That should be “The First Day of the Season.”)

      Hello Raviji!
      Excellent response to the word prompt, First. So thoughtful of you to associate this with the seasons, in your well crafted haikus.
      I enjoyed reading your haikus and tankas, with nice imagery.
      Thank you for sharing.
      Thank you John, for sharing this in the forum.

    These are beautiful haikus and tankas based on the first days of spring, autumn and winter seasons. Each one of them is uniquely gracious with their imagery. Yes, I enjoyed reading them and think they are a good response to Brenda's prompt. Thank you for sharing, Ravi.

    Thanks John for highlighting Ravi's work.

    In your article "The First Day of the Season" you paint a beautiful picture of the word "first."

    There is always a promise in the word "first," a promise of hope, new tidings, or even peace that we can expect in the future.

    Then your writing is based on the magical first day of every season: spring, autumn, and winter. 

    On the First Day of Spring you show us how everything starts coming back to life including the song in your heart.

    "On the First Day of Autumn" you show us how dismal a chilly autumn day is with those rains & bitter cold.
    We get chilly just looking upon a gloomy day with no color.

    "On the First Day of Winter" you paint a beautiful scene of the winter sky & you're happy the end of the workweek has arrived.

    Then you're a bit melancholy listening to the sound of the cukoo who reminds you of those broken hearts that come with gloomy days.

    But you have hope that your feelings of love will remain as you hold hands in the sunset.

    As the winter winds continue to blow you hold on tight to the love you shared yesterday. A great feeling.

    These poems show how each season changes our moods.

    They are lovely...except for the spider...he can stay trapped.

    I'll post a link in the word prompt article.

    You've created a great group of poems, Ravi. I enjoyed reading them all, but my favourite is the one about the groaning gate. I love the imagery in that poem.
