Cherry Blossoms #SOL15

7 Mar


My favorite part of my commute to works this little stretch where the neighborhood street is lined with flowering cherry trees. They bloomed a little early this year because of the unusually warm winter, but, two weeks before Spring break, this is s a lovely little pick me up each day. Here are a few haiku my commute has inspired.

descending the hill

the sky becomes a canopy

of cherry blossoms

suns rises, fogs lifts

the valley is waking up

cherry blossoms sing

cherry blossoms guide me

down the hill and into

the joy of my day

harbingers of spring

 cherry blossoms celebrate

another day unfolds

    My son who still lives in Portland gave me a recent video tour of hos hard featuring some of his flowering trees and tender sprouts in his raised beds. We are still snowbound here, but there are signs, rivulets of water from the snowbanks, cold that struggles to sustain. Happy spring to you..thanks for sharing the glimpse of what will eventually come. Glad your sweet Fiona is a part of this tender new season.

    Beautiful haikus – and what a lucky commute! It gives me hope that spring will arrive on my commute too! I live in a valley, and find myself feeling lucky at the scenery on my way to work as well. 🙂

    Spectacular view and beautiful haiku! Our plum blossoms are out but I can’t wait for the cherry blossoms.

    What a great sight to see on the way to work. Love the haiku. Soon, I hope, our snow will be gone and the pussy willow and lilacs will pop forth.
