This week at the Haiku Foundation’s weekly column, Haiku Dialogue, Tia Haynes, who is the editor, designated the signs of spring as the prompt. This pedometer geek was fortunate in that Tia chose one of my submitted haiku. It is as follows:
my hope rises
with the sun
~Nancy Brady, 2020
I have always loved crocuses and eagerly await the first crocus to bloom. In the small city in which we reside, the first to be seen are down the street in front of the Presbyterian Church. Eventually the ones that we have planted emerge and blossom. The last crocuses to bloom are tucked into ground cover and gets little direct sunlight. These harbingers of spring make me realize that yes, I have survived the grays of another winter and make me hopeful for the greening of the earth once again. Because theses crocuses are all over the the city and bloom at different intervals, it is a protracted period of enjoyment for this pedometer geek.
