New leaves; spring haiku

apr 23 002

hours ago
winter's dry sticks;
now green and hungry

apr 23 004

leaves so fresh
no bug has drawn juice;
praise be!

apr 23 001

damp from birth
and fuzzed with wonder;
April leaves

-Andromeda Jazmon

Friday Poetry is hosted by Lisa Chellman today. Enjoy!

Enjoyed these, especially the last one - fuzzed with wonder

Ditto what the last commenter said. Love the "fuzzed with wonder"

No green leaves opening on the trees around here yet. At least our forsythia is adding color to the scenery.

Beautiful haikus and photographs! I am watching my forest pop with green buds as I sit outside with my laptop!
I love spring!

I can't read your post without hearing Robert in my ear: "Nature's first green is gold..."

How lovely! I, too, esp. loved "damp from birth and fuzzed with wonder" ... what a great image.
