Haiku Reflections: Snow Melts, Reveals Spring


snow melts reveals spring

Spring comes early, here in BC Canada.

And this year, I can’t wait! πŸ™‚

Unlike where I grew up on the Prairies, where it’s not unusual to have snow, well into May.

I’ve had spring on my mind a lot these days. It’s been so grey and dreary lately. 😦

But thoughts of sunshine and color, keep me looking forward; if only in my thoughts and dreams.

This haiku from my firstΒ haiku book: Haiku Reflections: The Four Seasons,Β came to mind recently too.

It also gave me a little mood-boost! I hope it does the same for youΒ too! πŸ™‚

Happy (and hopefully, early)Β Spring!Β

  1. I’m jealous, Geraldine! πŸ˜‰ Spring is always so anticipated and delighted in. Will be a few months, but I’m excited already! πŸ™‚

  2. Thank you, Geraldine, for the “mood-boost.” This is lovely…yeah BC!
    I’m going outside now to work in my garden.

    Blessings ~ Wendy

  3. What a gorgeous photograph, Geraldine! As well is your Hiaku!

    It’s been spring-like here as well. You would never know it’s still January because all you need outside is a light jacket. I have a feeling though, we’re going to get more winter before it’s over.

    Have a GREAT week, my friend!

  4. Love the haiku and what a great photo. Spring does come early in BC. And yes, it does lift your spirits, even to just think about it for now.

  5. Lovely Haiku Geraldine…may the sun shine upon u guys today!! πŸ™‚

  6. That’s beautiful G., our usually begin somewhere in April/May πŸ™‚

  7. Kim, The forecast for the East sounds like more snow on the way, I guess spring is going to be a while getting there this year. But it will get there, that’s for sure. πŸ˜‰

    Wendy, Wow, gardening already, really? That is amazing.

    Ron, Thanks so much for your kind words. More snow on the way to you, I’m not surprised. But just think of those gorgeous photos to follow. πŸ˜‰

    Joe, And we’ve got a week of sunshine coming up to go with it, woohoo..that I’m really looking forward to.

    Aditi, And may it shine on you too, in every way!

    Lorraine, Thanks Lorraine. Seems like here in BC, right after the holidays it starts to warm up a lot. Not like the Feb. March…that I remember from the Prairies. Those were bitter cold months usually.

    Hugs to All and Happy Spring (soon!!!) G
