Nearly Spring “Haiku”

virulent yellow

daffodils headbanging

to heavy metal winds


three ducks on the pond

back from holiday

will there be eggs?


yellow irises

stretch after their sleep

a sonorous yawn


Maggie the magnolia

dresses luxuriant

with silken buds


impatient roses

racing for the sun

new vibrant growth


Camelia, Azalea

and Rhododendron

the coming trinity


dotted about

the dainty daisies

end the pralaya


randy toads

doing breaststroke

fresh strings of pearls
