This month at Carpe Diem Haiku we’re working on kigo ( season) words. That is, words that in this form of poetry is referring to the time of year.
In this episode the prompt words are ” desire for spring” .

Inspired by these examples by Jane

eaves dripping
the candle flame
flickers

winter days
a heart runs without panting

after the darkness
I am longing for the young leaves
and cherry blossoms

the blooming cherries
watching them in the moonlight
it’s magical

Forsythia

One of four forsythia bushes at ‘Ole Rickety’, the space I run away to. This is what it looked like today, yes buried in snow, past my knees and not a bloom in sight. And no, I’m not loosing it. I just really like this pic so I’m using it twice..with this one, it was sunnier.
