MLMM — Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, February 13th 2019, cherry blossom

first day of spring


Chèvrefeuille is our host of Heeding Haiku. Chèvrefeuille says:

This week I read the first cherry blossom forecast of Japan and the first cherry blossoms have started to bloom in Japan. The cherry blossom forecast stays on until end of May 2019 by the way. This week’s theme / prompt is therefore CHERRY BLOSSOM and your task is to create a haiku or haibun with this theme / prompt.


Winter wants to stay

a star — it whirls and twirls while

cherry blossoms sleep.



Awakening from

Winter, cherry blossoms stretch —

Spring morning yoga.



Spring prima donas,

fragrant cherry blossoms dance

in the sky’s blue stage.



Spring cherry blossoms —

fragrant pink and white petals

dance free in the wind.



Cherry blossoms burst

when warm rays light their fuses –

Spring’s fragrant fireworks!
