Spring Haiku

The Spring path at the island of Mainau during...

Farewell Soft Wind

Spring’s final farewell
whispers gently on the wind
with tomorrow’s hope

It’s Time Again

Tic tock says the clock
Blooming flowers having peaked
Time to spring ahead

The Race Goes On

A circle of time:
Summer catches the baton
as we watch spring fade.

Inspired by Kyoshi Takahama, these haiku are a take on his poem, the Night of Spring.  It reminds me of the observer watching spring fade away.  The poems, above, are my take on that theme.  In this case, I ended up re-writing two of them because I thought the originals were just too darn depressing.  The clever prompt for today comes from the daily haiku challenge at Carpe Diem.

    Sometimes evoking a feeling of sadness is the point of writing a haiku! 🙂
