A haiku, Flowering anticipation

Updated on January 26, 2012

I am a writer of poetry and fiction. I especially love flash fiction. My name is Ruby, and I live in Southern Illinois. I am a retired R.N.

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

      Oh, all those beautiful words perfectly stringed into haiku's. Ruby, you are excelling as a haiku-er.

      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.
