Haiku Friday: Spring and Sprung

Haiku Friday

Peeking yellow, red
Tulips break the cold, dark, earth
Yet, still I shiver

Tired of winter
sniffling frozen noses
Grey, slow, roll of cloud

Yesterday, one ray
pierced straight through concrete path
I caught a glimpse: spring.

    Don’t worry, spring cannot be kept at bay for much longer – you will be warm again!

    Haikus always catch my attention. I mean, you have to put meaning in those words and at the same time count those syllables… I love the style!

    Mmmmm… spring. I miss it. I see the blossoms, and occasionally, it’s been warm, but not lately. I can’t wait until it is! Sending warm thoughts your way.

    a series of haiku about spring, almost like a free verse but, each can stand on its own.
