Lone ladybird emerges
Spring around corner
What would a Monday be without your haiku? Emptiness comes to mind. 🙂 Sign of spring popped up this weekend here in Olympia, and welcomed they were.
Have a Marvelous Monday!

Ah, now I know where you live. Thurston County, Washington, which makes you seven hours behind me. I like to get my bearings, and know where my special blogging friends are situated. I’m glad my haiku make your Mondays fuller and that Spring is showing its face in your neighborhood, too.
Wishing you a wonderful week 🙂
Just perfect–the tone, the freshness of the stalks, the colors of the ladybug, the last line of your haiku. I will keep it all in mind when we get smack with the blizzard that should hit NYC tomorrow morning. Spring’s around the corner… yes, it is. 🙂
Sometimes, your weather hits the UK a fortnight later. Please tell your blizzard to stay away from us 😉 I’ll think of you being sustained by my haiku, but hope greatly that your weather forecasters are as inaccurate as ours can be sometimes. Those stalks in my photo belong to some narcissus plants that are almost in bloom. I’m quite excited, as I think the ladybird had 5 spots, although I wasn’t able to check, as it had flown away by the time I read online that 5-spot ladybirds are very rare.
Oh, this does my heart good for many reasons, but especially to see a real ladybird after so many years. Where I live, they have all been supplanted by another species of spotted Asian beetle which is a faded orange colour and not the cheerful red I remember. I’m so glad they continue to thrive in your corner of the world!
That’s so sad, to have another, less attractive ladybird take its place. I’ve always loved bright red ladybirds, and even had a huge clockwork windup one when I was a small child, that I saved up for with my pocket money! Here’s another ladybird haiku you might like https://sarahpotterwrites.com/2014/04/14/monday-morning-haiku-10/
That one is wonderful — thank you for pointing me to it! And I would very much covet a clockwork ladybird… 🙂
Sprint G around the corner and here we’really shoveling snow.
According to our weather forecast for the UK, your icy weather is going to his us this weekend.
Sweet ladybird, I haven’t seen my first yet, though I’ve seen my first 3 bees.
Yes, I’ve seen a couple of honeybees, too. Also, the giant bumblebee that lives in the rockery ventured out on the warmest sunniest day of last week.
Nature is the best topic for me in poetry. And it’s good to see, that we have a different field in poetry which entirely focused on nature. The Haikus. And it feels even better when I get to read such beautiful Haikus. The picture was as beautiful!
Thank you 🙂 Nature is a forever inspiration, with no two flowers, birds, insects, clouds, or quality of light ever exactly the same, so there’s always something new to write about.
