Sunny warmth coaxes
color from earth's fertile womb.
Winter melts.

Humus' chilled depth,
Sky's reflection thrust upward.
Velvet corolla.


Life spirals
to touch beauty
At every turn.

Lovely haikus and photos - nice contrast to your last post. It's good to see all the signs of spring appearing, our crocus are well over now and there's a gteen haze starting to appear that says the trees are starting to unfurl their new leaves.

my first response was "breath-taking!" but then i realized how totally dorky that would sound considering the source :-)
so i will instead say...brilliant! esp the "birth" haiku...

The photos and haiku complement each other so well. Spring is on its way. Love the last haku especially.

I enjoyed these and well done for the nifty use of spiral in the last one to fit in with the Poetry Thursday one word prompt earlier this week!

Hi Remiman,
thanks for visiting my blog! Yes, it´s a pitty that the rose sculpture was so expensive!

I love your pictures especially those from the white-lilac crocus!

Greetings, Verena

Such beautiful photos of spring. This is the first year I've seen the striped crocus.

I like the second one...'Sky's reflection thrust upward' says so much more than may be evident at first read. Perhaps that is why we all love the shorter poetic forms like haiku. Nice work.

I would be content to only have viewed the first, but then came the second and third. I leave knowing there is a fourth and fifth not being shared and I want to read them.

We are supposed to get more 3-5 more inches of snow tomorrow night!

All very nice - I especially like the last one, being so partial to spirals.

These are a gorgeous honoring of spring time. I love the catchy words; thrust, spirals, coaxes and velvet corolla!
