A haiku, Flowering anticipation

Potential Budding

Grass blades wet with dew

Shimmering, Sparkling, Gleaming

Frosty countryside

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Sunshine beam appears

Natural phenomenon

Iciness dissipating

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Temperature climbs

Afternoon enjoyable

Breeziness gentle

^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^^

Earth's warmness emerges

Potential budding

Anticipation

Martie's comment intrigued me. What is a Haiku writer?

A Haiku-er, Haiku-ey, Haiku-ist, Haiku-teer or something else. Hmmm interesting thought.
