Written for:  Carpe Diem #1183 first day of spring (haruno saisho no hi)
Write about spring in a classical haiku.

on the scales
Kyoto and Edo balanced
in this spring of a thousand years

a spring night:
and with the dawn on the cherries,
it has ended

© Matsuo Basho

the last snow is melting
snowdrops open in silence
the first spring day is here

© Chèvrefeuille (our host)

Here is my attempt:

Green buds appear
the apple tree is stirring
bringing forth spring


About purplepeninportland

I am a freelance poet, born and bred in Brooklyn, New York. I live with my husband, John, and two charming rescue dogs–Marion Miller and Murphy. We spent eight lovely years in Portland, OR, but are now back in New York. My goal is to create and share poetry with others who write, or simply enjoy reading poetry. I hope to touch a nerve in you, and feel your sparks as well.
