Celebrate Poetry–4/3: SPRING

The theme for Day 3’s celebrating National Poetry Month is “Spring.” Click HERE for details of this haiku celebration of throughout the month of April.

The following haiku is taken from my new book, Life: Haiku by Haiku:

yellow daffodils
dance in Spring breezes, like the
giggles of nature

    Spring finally came
    All new smells, start to appear
    Allergies take over

  2. I like yours, Jan. It makes me feel happy on a morning filled with thunderstorms. Here’s mine.

    Frozen life unfurls
    Green leaves stretch toward pale sunlight
    Children play outside

  3. noon shimmering bright-
    smudged by the artful shadow
    of a passing bird

  4. Shivers of yellow
    dance in the breeze, sing of hope.
    New birth peeks through death

  5. Narcissi wake, yawn,
    Misty sun stirs hope for life
    and transforms to gold.

    (Did I do that right?)

  6. Jim Barton says:

    sudden Spring cloudburst–
    running with our drinks and their
    paper umbrellas

  7. Fay Guinn says:

    Cardinals mating
    mid-air. Flutter of red wings.
    Fly from each other

  8. Steve says:

    Everything’s gone green
    Bottoms up, tops down, wet rain
    I think we should mate!

  9. Beth Carter says:

    Birds in formations.
    Dogwoods, Redbuds bursting blooms.
    Allergies be damned.

    Soft April rain
    freckle face girl catching drops
    in her rain bonnet

  11. Azim Khan says:

    winter is over
    a wreath of flowers
    on mama’s grave

  12. Azim Khan says:

    a woodpecker
    forks out a worm
    spring meal

  13. Azim Khan says:

    garland of nasturtium
    run down the terrace —
    a hummingbird

  14. Azim Khan says:

    trapped winter soul
    longing for a spring
    whisper

  15. Azim Khan says:

    blooming jasmine-
    nocturnal paradise
    rani meets the raja

  16. Nora says:

    Melodious birds.
    Hide in the branches and leaves ,
    that spring new green growth.
