Spring Sighting -Tanka Haibun

This winter has not been especially kind to my spirits. A heavy heart loomed, most times out of nowhere. It was hard to get ahold of, or figure out why. This fueled my quest for spring which took its time getting here.Today, I spotted my first cherry blossoms! A lone tree, stands among others that still stood tall, gawky and bare. This lifted my spirits.

 

first of the season
a cherry blossom sighting
as spring takes a hold
the blossoms ripple and sway
in spring breeze, lightens my mood

  1. I can appreciate your feelings, Pat–I was having a rough go last year which lasted into February. But whatever my winter mood, each year I live for the arrival of cherry blossoms. I love them, and they’re so short lived–ours are already losing petals…which makes a gorgeous pink carpet as “farewell” ❤ Wonderful writing from you, as usual 🙂
