April 24 Haiku

new maple leaves 6.JPG

Small green hands uncurl
astonished in the sunshine;
today is their birthday!

Today is one of my very favorite days of the year - the day the leaves pop out. Driving to and from work is a wonder, the way that fresh green spreads from tree to tree. I can hardly keep my eyes on the road. Baby leaves waving all around us... happy happy day! Click on the picture to see more leaf and flower pictures from today in my Flickr April set.
