Haiku: Awakening Spring

Graceful arching boughs

Awaken to warming rays

Buds about to break.

Bees buzz busily.

The woodlands are full of song.

Huge ancient oaks sigh.

So easy to miss!

This sleepy-eyed trickster waits.

Damselfly, beware!

Spent camellia blooms

Litter the damp forest floor.

Springtime parade confetti.

Tempting perfection.

My imagined confection.

Ah! cool peppermint.

A bluejay beckons

From his festive,blossomed perch

Shreep, shreep, shreep! It's spring!

I value your praise all the more because you are such a talented haiku poet. I have been so inspired to get out my camera this Spring and write about the images. Thank you!

Hello cat! "Parade confetti" what a delightful and descriptive notice. Still a month away from full bloom here in Oregon, but you have wet our appetites. Beautiful poetry. well done.

Hi Arb! I'm happy that you like the image of confetti. It came to me as I was walking through the camellia forest in nearby Descanso Gardens and thinking that the floral dispay was as pretty as a Spring parade. There is a sweet beauty in the green tips of bare branches that hold the drops Of Oregon rain. You have much to enjoy before full bloom! Thank you for your kind remarks:>)
