A Year in Haiku

JANUARY Delightful display Of snowdrops bowing white heads To the sun’s glory. FEBRUARY Green buds now appear Indicating spring will soon Energise us all. MARCH Lambs gambol in fields Frisky with the joys of life Bleating happily. APRIL Bluebells standing proud Beneath trees now sparsely dressed With freshest green leaves. MAY Much awaited sound Echoes through forest and copse - Cuckoo’s arrival. JUNE Parks and gardens burst With sounds and vibrant colours Perfect harmony. JULY Beaches become full Of families having fun In sand and big waves. AUGUST Ripe golden harvest Burning sun in azure skies Labours rewarded. SEPTEMBER Swallows congregate On telephone wires ready To migrate down south. OCTOBER Red and gold leaves fall, Crunchy as cornflakes beneath Feet on a crisp morn. NOVEMBER Frosty webs sparkle In the early morning sun Brightly bejewelled. DECEMBER First few flakes of snow Dust gardens like icing on A chocolate cake.

Loved your year in haiku. Each one a perfect image. Hmm it's difficult to choose my favourite month, but I did really like October's 'crunchy as cornflakes' leaves. Really enjoyed the read, thanks ~ Sharon :)
