Haikus - Spring

Updated on April 28, 2012

Spring Haikus

Spring Haikus


Dr. Darryl Winer


Dormant grass and rooting bulbs

Have pent-up demand

A few early birds

Feathers puffed against the cold

Mating plans in mind

Bats, balls, gloves and spikes

Men in brilliant uniforms

Spring training begins

The early crocus

Knows not that winter’s not done

Looks up for the sun

Melting snow reveals

Tan-brown lawns with hints of green

Aching for some sun

Northern hemisphere

Coming days of warmth and color

Chases winter south

Fading winter’s light

Clings helplessly in shadows

From spring’s golden glow

Amidst the clamor

The returning birds on wing

Hearld spring’s rebirth

As the earth rotates

A time for new beginnings

Tis really the tilt

Softly melting snow

Coaxes streams from their slumber

Wet fingers reaching

Quite obstreperous

Crow, in shinny black feathers

Raucously scolds all

Warm and gentle breeze

Encourages wakefulness

Sights and sounds of spring

      I felt like a flower, breaking my way up to the caressing spring sun rays, very beautiful!
