Write one standard haiku verse of 17 syllables that describes the month which follows the month written about by the previous poster. I'll kick things off with January...

January

Fresh starts and morn frosts
Like infinite fractured suns,
Sparkle in the grass.

February

Blue-skinned winds bend hands
Round breaths; in snow-scuffed pockets.
Small warmths are hoarded.

See a sign of Spring!
Green fingers puncture last frosts,
Grown daffodil-bold.

April

The paschal bells ring:
"He bled for Man to eat eggs."
The month of all fools.

May days come and go
with festivals about Spring
or about Workers.

June

The lick of summer
Tantalises brave arms bared.
Winds make promises.

Albuquerque in
July brings one hundred or
higher degree days.

August

The sun pours honey,
Wilting laughing beachgoers.
Work's shadow draws near.

September

Summer greys early
Like an unattended fire.
How long till Christmas?

October

Amidst trees aflame
With dying leaves and kernels,
Thoughts are trodden brown.

November

The rains have a bite,
An edge, the gales remind them
They had forgotten.

December

Things and times to come
Lie waiting, boxed in paper.
Have the hand to tear.

JANUARY:
An arbitrary
placeholder for people who
need self-directives.

February

Brings birthdays of old
friends and relatives long known.
Time is flying by.

March

Named for a war god,
The month has conflicting climes:
For each beam, a drop.

Wait on a second
Horological chiming
Ever ours in time

MAY:
What are you doing
so far from the beginning
of December's reign?

Too many f'ing
brides; weddings everywhere and
all are overpriced
