NaPoWriMo Poems #25, #26, #27, #28, #29

Okay, okay. Yes, today is the last day of National Poetry Month and the last day of my NaPoWriMo challenge of writing 30 poems in 30 days. I had hoped not to stoop to writing a bunch of haiku to squeak under the deadline by writing a handful of haiku, but with the difficulties inherent in this month, I had to write several spring haiku to take me to the finish line. So here are five haiku--all about the lovely and renewing season of spring.

Haiku on Spring

The apple blossoms
unfurl from the ancient tree,
white centered, pink edged.

The sun on my face
warms to my very marrow--
melting wintry heart.

Fingers dig deeply
into the winter-cooled earth--
part of warming spring.

Sitting on front porch,
fragrance of newly-turned earth
begs me to greet spring.

Irises royal,
purple sentinels glory
in spring flower beds.

Wonderful poems! I think moving to WordPress (a blogging tool) will help make your site more proffesional, but that's just my opinion. Well done on completing the NaPoWriMo challenge!
