End of Eastertide

This week, Frank J. Tassone’s haikai prompt is to write about the passing spring. Today is Pentecost, which, in Christianity, marks the descent of the Holy Spirit and also the end of the Easter season. I love the Easter season, but for once I do not feel grieved by the passage of time.


Pentecost Sunday

Soon // Passing spring, passing time

But I’m rejoicing:

“If I do not go away,

I cannot send the Spirit.”
