Haiku of the day

A sure sign of spring. (Scott Anderson - AP)
Today’s spring haiku from our haiku contest winner, Stephen McClurg, is perfect for Wednesday’s breezy, 70-degree weather. He titled it: “The Last Night of Spring Break.”

When the sand is cool,
stay unmoved. Listen. The waves
will whisper “summer.”
