Naturalist Weekly: Micro-Season–The First Peach Blossoms

This week on the Naturalist Weekly blog, Mark S talks about the second micro-season, The First Peach Blossoms, in the mini-season, Awakening of Insects. He then goes on to discuss the peach tree and some historical facts about peach trees and fun facts about the fruit itself.

Per usual, he also devotes a section to haiku from the masters like Issa and Buson about spring blossoms, and he also invites readers to post seasonal haiku about blossoms.

To read the blog, check out To add a haiku or two, use the comment section at the end of the blog.

This pedometer geek writer wrote the following haiku:

May Day…
peach blossoms mix
with parade confetti
~Nancy Brady, 2023

apple blossoms
swirl in the breeze
–a toddler giggles
~Nancy Brady, 2022

she dances
among the cherry blossoms
last chemo
~Nancy Brady, 2020
published in Blo͞o Outlier, Premiere issue, December 2020

About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    Fun. I love walking in the neighborhood in spring and being showered by the petals of the flowering trees 🙂

    Hi Nan, Thanks again for sharing such wonderful haiku! There is so much imagery and emotion captured in one. Reading them all again, I am still going with the third one (“she dances”) as my favorite. I hope you have a good weekend!

    • Hey Mark! Thanks for the kind remarks. I have always loved my “she dances” and submitted it so many times before Alan Summers chose it for his premiere Blo͞o Outlier journal. He paired it with a photograph of a cherry tree’s limbs covered in blossoms. I believe he may have been the photographer for that photo (and others in the journal).

      Have a great weekend; I look forward to your next edition of Naturalist Weekly. ~nan

    These are all bright and airy and fun to read. The last one offers also a glimmer of hope to a tinge of darkness. Very clever of you.
