Haiku to Welcome Spring: Nature’s Aria

Haiku to Welcome Spring: Nature’s Aria

I love to write haiku!  Creating these short poems helps me to relax, to process events and feelings, and even to be more patient when waiting in long lines.  The “be more patient” haikus usually have themes related to why I’m waiting…I’ll share some of those another time. Today, I’m reveling in spring, and this haiku literally “sprung” into my head while I was marveling at the color of the azaleas.

Nature’s Aria

The azaleas and lantana hold up their pink and purple faces to the sun.

Nature’s way to sing:
The wild and exuberant
Hopefulness of spring.
