Spring Haiku #1 . . .

Spring is in the air

Scented blooms ride soft breezes

My heart swells with joy

April 2015

English Haiku is one of my favorite forms of poetry.

Simple verse, three lines, 5-7-5 syllables, seasonal, often with a nature image.

I wrote this in the Spring of 2015 for a young friend that I have been mentoring. 

No surprise - since I usually begin counting the days to Spring in November - this Haiku is about Spring.

As I write this, just 115 days to the first day of Spring, March 20, 2018 . . .

Thinking about writing a 'Haiku A Day' in 2018. 

Now that would be an enormously fun New Year Resolution for a creative like me!
