Haiku: Signs of Spring...

"You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming." Pablo Neruda

Haiku: Signs of Spring...
 A winged friend returns
Shared gifts of cool breeze, spring flowers
Sadness vanishes...

Today, the words are Butterfly and Coming of Spring

What is Carpe DiemBlog Owner, Kristjaan Panneman,  describes it as:  "a weblog on haiku. It's a new daily haiku meme where you can write a classical or non-classical haiku on a given prompt. Haiku is an ancient Japanese poetry form. A haiku has three short lines and describes a short moment (as short as the sound of a pebble thrown into water). Mostly a haiku counts 5-7-5 syllables and is sometimes called 'counted verse.'"

“The butterfly counts not months but moments, and has time enough.” Rabindranath Tagore

Haiku: Signs of Spring...
Purple blooms poke through
Auguring a season shift
light, delicate air...

  4. Some things come to mind seeing the butterfly and talking of spring...rebirth, re-emergence, new beginnings. I like the feel of that. :-)

  5. For me the coming of spring symbolizes hope. By the way, the photos are beautiful, especially the butterfly.
