April 13 Haiku for Edna St. Vincent Millay

april 12 004

lilac leaves
snap open stickily;
empty cups

When I saw these lilacs burst into leaf this weekend I couldn't help think of Millay's poem Spring.

This sequence of words: Snaps open stickily (if I remember right) works so perfectly.

Thanks for sharing

Mmm ... lilacs. Can't wait to see them, to smell their sweet-sweet spring scent. I like your haiku, thanks!
