Haiku Reflections: The Promise of Spring


the promise of spring haiku

Not much color here yet, in Interior BC, just a lot of greys and browns to look at. 😦

Thought this haiku and “pop” of color  from my photo files would make for a nice change today.  

How are things where you are? Any buds, plants, flowers in bloom yet?

Wishing You a Wonderful Week! 🙂

  1. Beautiful photo and verse. Have a great week, Geraldine. 🙂 Looking forward to (consistent – no more snow and cold) warm sunny days, too.

  2. Geraldine…this photo is STUNNING! The color is spectacular!

    Love the Haiku as well!

    And yes, I’m slowly seeing flowers in bloom here. In fact, I may be posting about it later in the week.

    Have a LOVELY week, my friend!


  3. Can’t wait until the colour erupts here, Geraldine. It seems to be taking soooo long this year. It’s nice to have the photos to remind us it’s not always brown and dull and grey (or white here, with snow still around). 🙂

  4. Love the haiku and the photo too. We aren’t there yet but soon.

  5. Wonderful picture of the blossom. Doesn’t it lift the soul when new growth comes? Great Haiku.

  6. We are getting some sun today Joyce, what a treat. But it’s still so BROWN looking out my window. I’m longing for lots of color!!!

    Thanks Ron, I love pink, all shades. This photo makes me smile. 😉

    I hear ya Kim, enough already!!! Before we know it, it will be fall again. Bring on the spring and the color!!!

    Thanks Joe. No, it’s been a very slow start to the spring, especially for BC.

    Thanks Val. It really does lift the spirits I agree. 🙂

    Happy Week and Happy Spring, G
