Haiku for Late Winter or Early Spring

gray days—
who can remember
lemonade?

 

morning moon:
trying to show
the cat

 

closed buds—
in every mouth
a song

 

the skip
in her hello—

spring!

    Lovely, Liz! I’m especially drawn to the third one, with the image of a closed bud resembling a mouth, and the world about to burst forth in bloom as well as song for spring. Delightful! Thanks for sharing.

    We picked up another 8 inches here – after they forecast only 1-3 – so it’s definitely feeling more like a late winter than an early spring! Nice poem, though…great imagery!

    With the snow this past week, and 30 degree temps tonight, I can hardly wait for blue skies and lemonade! : )
