Haikus - Spring

Spring Haikus


Spring Haikus

by

Dr. Darryl Winer


Mid-February

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
