Haiku for Spring

Spring has finally sprung here in New York. Some structured word pictures of the scenes and emotions of spring. Any and all comments appreciated and welcome!

Tiny wren flitters
Singing inside the bushes
Happy to see spring

Crocuses poke through
Stubborn edges of grey snow
Heralding warm days

The sky seems lighter
The wind and rain seem softer
As the days lengthen

Reverie broken
By sudden northern cold snaps
Which soon moderate

Bright morning, dry, clear
Afternoon showers, quick, wet
Then dry cool evening

Lark greets early dawn
Excited, singing brightly
Exalting the spring

Dove mourns passing night
As sun rises promising
Warmth, growth, spring flowers

Also check out Haiku Hoopla for interviews and samplings from established haiku poets.


  1. I love this! "Afternoon showers, quick, wet" is my favorite line (I always play favorites).

  2. Excellent! Life is too short to not have favorites. Thank you!
