NaPoWriMo 2017 Haiku 575 - Day Seven


It's been a great day for haiku writing! This morning I went for a walk with some of the other volunteers down 'sakura road' - a whole lane lined with cherry blossom trees, with a river running down the middle. Beautiful, and not too damaged by the rain - in fact, rather more beautiful for the dew drops dripping off them. Here are my haiku, along with some of the photos I took today.

35.

rainbow petrol spill

daffodils turning away

cannot bear the smell

36.

after the rain clears

sweet, sharp scent of sakura,

actually, too sweet

37.

coffee shop jazz tunes

until the coffee kicks in

relaxing, then – WHAM!

38.

moody almost storm

belts of brightness in the sky

darkness in the brow

39.

under this pink cloak

little bluebell, unnoticed

don't fret, I see you

40.

once the raindrops dry

unladen blossoms flutter,

now the petals fall

41.

feeling so genki

despite the threatening sky

if you must rain, rain

42.

jostling for space

bucketful of pansies, oh

narcissistic bloom

43.

getting lost by choice

finding once again my path

turning off once more

44.

military base

with sakura trees throughout

doesn't seem quite right
