Spring Haiku

I was browsing through my poetry binder last weekend and, of course, came across my favorite haiku:

Fan Piece for Her Imperial Lord

O fan of white silk,
Clear as front on the grass-blade,
You are also laid aside
Ezra Pound

It made me wonder if I could find some fun haiku for spring.  There are actually quite a few but I like these two:

Rise from winter’s nap
Stretch to feel the sun’s warm rays
Spring is among us
Shannon Schofield

The temple bell stops.
But the sound keeps coming
out of the flowers.

Any spring poetry that you like?  Written any haiku lately?

  1. Rise and Shine, Baboons,

    I am impatient
    For tulips and irises
    Pink, yellow and green.

    Rise and shine Baboons
    For this weekend, shoveling
    A last winter gasp.

        1. I will repeat my dad’s really old, really lame “Dad Joke.”

          She’s a poet
          She doesn’t know it.
          Her feet are Longfellows.

  2. Ooh, this one was tacked on the back of the stall door in the dorm restroom. This is just the first four stanzas, my favorites.

    “sweet spring is your
    time is my time is our
    time for springtime is lovetime
    and viva sweet love

    (all the merry little birds are
    flying in the floating in the
    very spirits singing in
    are winging in the blossoming)

    lovers go and lovers come
    awandering awondering
    but any two are perfectly
    alone there’s nobody else alive

    (such a sky and such a sun
    i never knew and neither did you
    and everybody never breathed
    quite so many kinds of yes)
