This is a very short poem and it doesn't even rhyme ;) (That is 1, and now I do as you say and go back to sleep)

Thanks TJ I never know if I have got the haiku form correct I do struggle with the juxtaposition for the final line:-) hugs Jan xx

Hi Jan, today it has to be a Haiku that i visit, You do this form so well. You wrap your canvas in words that paint the picture you see and even if there were no picture your canvas would be in our minds and we would see. Haiku can come in many forms not just 575, the pure form. I just seem to take Haiku in the respect of what vision they portray. Your Haiku sings the vision Jan. A 575 beauty. This is a seven and a fave. Hugs....Mike. XX

This one I relate to! We had a week of Spring, followed by a week of winter and current week of Spring again. Had a real good time working on inside plants during the winter week, but we won't buy outside veg seeds until this weekend. Our goal is for the balcony to bulge. You reminded me how I love the first floral sign of Spring I see, always have. Take care ... CayCay

I have seedlings but they are so late in germinating this year - it is like winter again here so so cold we even have snow on the mountain and sleet and hail at the moment:-( hugs Jan xx

Thanks so much Keith to be honest I never know if I have written a proper haiku - i wish they had a '3 line poetry' form for poems that don't fit the form exactly. :-) hugs Jan xx

The snow has been replaced by rain here. Great haiku Jan
