Haiku, nature

Cherry blossom time

Cherry trees in bloom - Vancouver, B.C. Canada

Cherry Blossom Time

Pink spring debutantes
ball gown ruffles, froth and lace
cherry trees in bloom

Strawberry milkshakes
line Vancouver avenues
cotton candy hair

Blush cherry petals
one hundred trillion hankies
beckoning the bees

It’s cherry blossom time in Vancouver. The photo above was one I took last year of a street near where my son lives. Every year Vancouver salutes its thousands of blossoming cherry trees with the Cherry Blossom Festival. A haiku contest is part of that festival.  Want to join? Submit a maximum of two haiku here.

As you can see, I’m practising.
