In unkempt woodland,
twigs and brambles imprison
The area where I live is known for its daffodils…even have a Daffodil Parade….but this spring, so far, the daffodils haven’t made an appearance. They better hurry because the parade is scheduled. LOL Thank you for jump-starting my Monday morning, Sarah!

Nature does occasionally cause a problem when it doesn’t co-operate with the plans of humans 😉 You sound as if you’ve had a rough winter in the US. I do hope that summer makes up for it and doesn’t go to the other extreme i.e. too hot and dry. I’m glad you liked my daffodils. Here is a narcissus and daffodil parade I witnessed last year, to brighten your day… https://sarahpotterwrites.com/2016/03/09/wordless-wednesday-narcissus-jamboree/
‘…brambles imprison’; your tongue gets so appropriately tangled up in that, it’s perfect 🙂
Oh, Sunshine, I hadn’t tried reading that haiku out loud. I see what you mean! It’s wonderful when someone points out an additional element to a piece of writing, that the author herself hadn’t spotted 🙂
Perfect word choice. The words make their own cages, while the gold of the blooms still shines through.
Thank you, Magaly 🙂 I love your creative comment, too, about words making their own cages.
How lovely this is, Sarah. A Daffodil cage. 🙂
Beautiful – I love daffodils and hope they’ll find a way to break free! 🙂
Thank you, Sheila 🙂 There are daffodils everywhere, so some have definitely broken free!
I love this time of year when all the spring flowers begin their showy emergence from the barren landscape…
And I love your haikus! I decided to incorporate 30 days of poetry into an upcoming project – partly because of awesome posts like this. 🙂
Thank you, Cynthia. You’re so sweet 🙂 I love the spring flowers. This week, I’m surrounded by yellow. My forsythia is in bloom and other shrubs, too, to go with all the daffodils and narcissus flowers. It really does lift the spirits. Your project sounds interesting 🙂
ours are coming too!! Beautiful!
They are so cheering, aren’t they? 😀
Lovely image of the daffodils imprisoned by the vegetation Sarah.
Thank you, Andrea. I suspect it’s quite the sort of photo you might have taken yourself 🙂
