Prompt – Inspiration
This April 2012 haiku was prompted by Spring, of course. What more is there to say?

Spring Accessorizes

Winter’s grey-brown tweeds
sporting gold, ruby pendants
ruffles of pearl, pink

Spring is unpacking her bags. As usual, they contain things that entice us to snap photos and write poems. I do hope Spring is making similar progress where you live. If not now, then soon!

Winter blossoms

In the verdant season
under sun’s bright ray
in its warm expanding light
trees flower by day.

In the other season
of cold and fading light
pines and cedars, trunks and twigs
bloom at break of night.

Magnolia haiku

*************

Despite my accident earlier this spring, I’ve been getting out for a walk most days. Perhaps the fact that I go more slowly (cane and all) has heightened my enjoyment of spring this year. Many days what I see on my walk becomes the day’s poem (especially this April when I’ve been challenging myself to write one a day). These three haiku came about that way.
