Monday Morning #Haiku 161 — Green (2)

Plethora of greens
Embrace the dryad in you
Breathe that verdancy

Monday Morning #Haiku 155 & 156 — Dandelion/Grandpa

Dandelion clocks
exist to taunt gardeners
and thrill herbalists.

Grandpa wears a hat
for fear of losing his hair
in a puff of wind.

#Tanka 32 — Storm

Charcoal clouds from north…
garden locked in somnolence
awaits first raindrops.
Storm hits, its broadside attack
an act of demolition.

Monday Morning #Haiku 154 — Cherry Blossom

Cherry blossom in churchyard
Nature obeys bride

Monday Morning #Haiku 152 & 153 — Seagull at First Light

Prehistoric shrieks…
Nightmare of pterodactyl
just a herring gull.

Rude awakening…
Seagull in hobnail boots
stomps across flat roof.

Monday Morning #Haiku 150 — Sunbathing

This week’s haiku is dedicated to all of my blogging friends across the Pond whose skies are shrouded in grey. Sending you hugs, smiles, and spring cheer from the South of England 🙂 

Honeybee sunbathes,
double petal daffodil
its yellow lilo.

Monday Morning #Haiku 148 — Wild Daffodils

In unkempt woodland,
twigs and brambles imprison
golden daffodils.

Monday Morning #Haiku 147 — Ladybird

Hibernation ends
Lone ladybird emerges
Spring around corner

Monday Morning Haiku #146 — Snowdrops

snowdrops

Late winter snowdrops…
Virgin brides adorned in white,
their stamens veiled.

Monday Morning #Haiku 145 — Wild Violets

february-violets

Shyness overcome,
violets velvet the grey
of February.
