Haiku: The First Day Of Spring…

20/03/2014

“Spring has returned. The Earth is like a child that knows poems.” Rainer Maria Rilke

Haiku: The First Day Of Spring... cherry blossoms  fill the air

Haiku: The First Day Of Spring… cherry blossoms fill the air

A shift in the winds
Cherry blossoms fill the air
The first day of spring

Today is Thursday March 20th, the first, official day of spring! The buds start to peak through; crocuses, forget-me-nots, blossoming cherry trees herald the awakening of a new day. Spring has sprung and we can set aside winter wear, listen to some Mamba and dance in the yard. Soon, we’ll see now vegetation and floral life everywhere.  Are you excited? What are your plans?

“Life stands before me like an eternal spring with new and brilliant clothes.” Carl Friedrich Gauss

Haiku: The First Day Of Spring... lighting equinox

Haiku: The First Day Of Spring… lighting equinox

The equinox calls
Balancing night with daylight
Our Hearts fluttering

Did you know the equinox  brings in spring; created by a balance… So take a moment to inhale the fresh air and enjoy the changing season and weather. I hope you enjoy the haiku shared. How did you celebrate the first day of spring? Happy Spring Haiku to all!

“You can cut all the flowers but you cannot keep spring from coming.” Pablo Neruda

    Hello, Spring. I am ready for it to come this year. As much as I love winter, I love all the promises that spring offers. There is still snow on the ground at my house, but I know the tulips will start popping through the ground soon.

    Such pretty pictures! I like Spring, but Spring does not like me. My allergies are killing me today. Country and classic rock were played in my house as a kid. I wouldn’t say it had much of an effect on me as I like all types of music, those included.

    In my part of the globe, we only have summer and rainy season. With climate change, there a blurred lines between the two. Social media have made understand the anticipation of spring. Friends who live in America would lament on Facebook about temperatures during Winter and the allergen sin Spring. :D

    I am so glad spring is here. I think it is the best time of the year with the weather getting warmer, the birds, frogs and other animals chirping, croaking and moving about again and the flowers and trees growing and budding out. Its really nice and today we got up to about 76 degrees so it was a nice day too.
