Month of Poetry #11: Haiku Day

It's haiku day over at Month of Poetry today. This is a simple, very traditional one - 5/7/5, no punctuation, focusing on a small point of nature, with a seasonal reference.

As I said on Twitter last night, I am going to have to sharpen my haiku skills and toughen my hide, as I am launching a slightly out-there project at work next week which will involve the writing of a weekly puzzle / riddle haiku. This obviously won't be one of them, but the practice is good for me!

the bud of a rose
cradled in small tapered hands
breathes scent of summer
