26th April 2012

thick scent of trumpet 
flowers assault my nostrils;
yellow, rich, heavy

grey veiling cloud mists
the morning sky, threatening 
rain that does not fall

stretching, releasing
from a firm centre strong, I 
work out; Pilates

the flat brown winter
trees become dimensional
as their leaves unfurl

oak trees frame the path
opposite; heather borders 
of spring green and mauve

absorbing colours
scents, sounds within a garden
of Kentish design

silver birch unfolds
bright green leaves that drift in the 
pleasant, balmy breeze

April 4th

Bright yellow flowers
cover the forsythia
like a swarm of bees.

by Libby 2012

I love this haiku for its strong imagery and shouting colours. I had never thought of the flowers being like a swarm of bees so that was delightful to read and imagine. I found this uplifting and refreshing. Freya

inbetween greyness
neither hot nor cold; weather
is indecisive
