Haiku Touch of Spring

the melting winter
waters sleeping daffodils
spring rocks the cradle

- 0 -

 robin melody
nature sings the song of spring
winter breathes a sigh

- 0 -

 lilacs tease the air
with their delicate perfume
the bouquet of spring

Herotomost said...

mmmmmm....lilacs. The olfactory ones get me everytime. The challenge embraced you today.

Very well done ~

I love the nature touches in your words ~

Grace O'Malley said...

Very nice!

My only quibble, because I am no fun whatsoever, is that your lilac haiku lacked a cut or juxtaposition (to my biased eyes).

Your delicate verses perfectly evoke the implacable spring!
