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
