Spring reminder (spring Haiku contest)

As spring takes over
breaking the hold of winter
the south dreads summer

Hello, Stan,
I love the active movement here - very continuous and fluid. I can feel the summer heat and humidity!
Thank you!

Here in the deep south we can hardly enjoy spring because we know that the oppressive heat of summer comes next lol. Thanks for the visit

I'm sure that it's true!

This must be the place, 'cause there ain't no place like this place anywhere near this place

I read once that one can tell if a person is from the north or south by asking whether they like spring or autumn best. Those from the south prefer autumn because it means the end of summer and those from the north prefer spring because it's the end of winter
