Sweet scented flowers
budding on the lilac trees
tiny purple blossoms
cluster of floral delight
fill the crisp air in springtime.

    Mmmm, I can smell the lilac. I used to think that lilac was a 'girl thing' (pardon me, I was only a young boy), but I've since grown up and gotten a grown up job and grown up stresses and aches, and I find that the scent is really soothing and relaxing and calms me down after a hard day.

    What a nice way to talk about it. Being a lover of haikus and tankas, I am happy to have come across it I adore the 'cluster of floral delight'

    Nicely done...we are already enjoying the blossoming of the lilac trees here in deep South Texas, along with a few others. A little more rain would help. I liked this.
