Welcome Spring

through the open door across my room sunlight spills. . . . robin redbreast trills the scent of blossoms carried on April’s warm breeze. . . . our first hummingbird among red flowers where my daughter twirls her skirt . . . . a butterfly flits in late afternoon laughing in our garden spot. . . . a bluebird singing

Such a beautiful picture. I'd love to place myself in this scene and enjoy a long, tall iced tea and a good book, perhaps with you, Andrea. Congrats!! Kathy

Lovely images to warm us with spring and its soothing sights and sounds vividly painted by your haiku. I have been busy with my g.daughter and it is such a joy to have her near-by. Love, Lotus

A welcome spring when Robin's sing. And April sheds her tears. Winter's chill has no more sting. As barbeque cooks swill down their beers.

Reads like a winner to me..Enjoyed reading this eve..Spring came a little earlier this year but is it here to stay..I think so..Thanks for stopping by my work "Sleep Talking"..I had never heard the song so looked it up after I wrote the work..I was surprised how close it was to what I said..Yes, that writer and singer was very prolific with his work..Sara
