Spring Training


Harbinger of Spring

Prompt #3: Write a Haiku that describes what you love about an ordinary day.

Snuggled up in the

scabby school gravel; could be

Spring not far behind?

I am totally amazed that you had those piles of snow practically yesterday, and now you have things growing. We have rain today washing a bunch of the snow away, and I can see just a little corner of my garden! But this seems early to me!

Very cool! I love the photo too! It's been raining for three days straight and I even heard thunder. I's say spring is just around the corner!

You sure went from ice mountains to Forgetmenots in a hurry! How amazing is that?!

Lovely words though and I am glad Spring is making her presence known to you.

It is almost here to stay. The chirping birds told me so. (Yes, I am Snow White. Couldn't you tell?)

that picture is beautiful and so is your poem.. I can't wait till the first thunderstorm.. our grass will be the most brilliant green after that. My aunt always said that something in the thunder shocked it out of hibernation .

As April is just around the corner here in Texas, we anxiously await the yearly "coming of the bluebonnets". Wildflowers make me smile! Nice pic and haiku.

Cheers!

Thanks for stopping by my blog. Our snow is all gone for now. We have some things just starting to bud outside.

A lovely harbinger to be sure ! No school gravel is going to keep this dandelion down.
