happy haiku

one crocus blazes
in winter's ashes 
as rain applauds 

*memories of the home we sold
**My prefered style is contemporary haiku which allows for metaphor

    When did you start writing haiku Cyndi, can't recall but your creative use of language lives in everything you write! :)

    ;) though the metaphor is best left in the mind space between the lines cause by the cutting word, so the reader concludes the metaphorical attributes in his or her own mind poem in the space left for the reader Aha! moment, there is a name for this type of metaphor in haiku Chas will remember but it isn't's implied. Light & Love Sis

    First I am lovin' the title! Second I like the parts where you put winter's ashes and bring rain up in the last line. Talking about the seasons and the weather conditions makes the poem interesting. I can easily create mental pictures after reading your Happy Haiku poem and your footnotes...

    I like the personification. Ok, I can't keep my mouth shut after reading your footnotes lol. It is many of the 'contemporary' strict haiku writers who do not like metaphor....that is the irony of it all. The haiku masters of yore, enjoyed and readily employed metaphor. Actually, come to think of it, Issa was more of a rogue, renegade and evolutionist than most of the modern haiku writers ha ha!
