Ode to spring (in several haikus)

An unnoticed bush

One day covered with blossoms–

Ephemeral joy

 

Sun at an angle;

Leaves on trees hanging, opaque,

Become translucent

 

Dry, brown, weed-like plant–

Nevertheless you’ve charmed me:

Rusted elegance

 

Shadows of branches,

They dance around as we talk:

Our lunch in the park

 

One week every year,

She blooms into pink beauty,

A heart opening

 

Walking to the train,

Hands not hidden in pockets,

His fingers clasp mine

 

Outside my window

White trees blow their white blossoms,

The snow I welcome

 

Birds in the morning,

Indifferent to me in bed,

Please go on singing
