        This event in the garden:
	life sprouting from dimpled snow.   
	Crocus, hyacinth.

    Thanks. I didn't think of it that way at all; I'm too literal. I like your version better.

    now this is the sort of haiku I enjoy, it paints a vivid picture of the spring flowers breaking through the snow; technically correct or not it is effective, a lovely poem for spring :)

    Aww this was sweet... I feel for the flower as a survivor of the harsh winter :) I liked how this simply stated facts... not striving for cleverness but simply writing the world around you as it was happening... 'tis real haiku!

    Thanks, Timothy. I thought a "bright" poem might be nice for a change.

    I thought it was time for something a bit less gloomy than my norm. BTW, I like your new Avatar. Jack
