Milky white shrouds of cold air
covering the sun
budding blossoms hide their heads.
Bursting through the clouds above
golden orb of warmth
come out, rise up, enjoy, grow!
Suddenly it’s all around
with blooms, large and small.
Rejoice my friends, spring is here!
So, I haven’t written in almost a year, and this is a feeble attempt at a spring haiku, inspired by the Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille prompt over at Mindlovemisery’s Menagerie. Obviously I will need some practise to shed those chains of rust that bind a hibernating poet, but National Poetry Writing Month 2016 (April) is just around the corner, and I will – again – attempt to rise to that challenge as well (30 poems in 30 days). Hang around and see how it goes…
