Late March

Später März / Late March / Finales de marzo  


Jetzt im späten März
Endlich der ersehnte Frühling 
Mit bunten Blüten 

Doch plötzlich neuer Schneefall
Kalter Wind aus den Bergen




Now in late March
At last the longed for spring
With colorful flowers

But suddenly new snowfall
And cold wind from the mountains 




Finales de marzo
Desiada primavera
Flores coloridas

Pero luego nevada
Viento frío de montañas

    lol. I'm chuckling because we've had a similar trick played on us by the weather, Gert. We had two beautiful days of pre-spring sunshine and soft winds and the third day brought a heavy downpour of rain. I don't mind the rain because it's necessary but I was so ready for spring! Beautiful Haiku as always! Annalise

    Gert, I'm sorry to hear you are still experiencing so much pain in your arm. Prayers headed your way. Perhaps a kindly pelican will carry them to Germany. Love and blessings for a speedy recovery, Carolyn

    Nature can play tricks on us, Gert. We think spring has finally arrived and then suddenly there's a late snowfall. Beautifuly tanka, my friend. Love, Carolyn
