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!
