Spring – Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille


Yay for spring! We never really have spring nor do winter, nor do autumn, just summer all year. That’s the Philippines for you, only two seasons, wet and dry. Temperatures nearly the same every day, the sun rises and sets also at the same time. I’m not saying I’m bored with it, but it’s also nice to experience the different seasons, to be cold, to be warm, to change tyres from winter to summer ones, to shovel snow, to clear all the falling leaves, to have some grill in the garden with friends in the summer and so on. Anyway, back to spring. Spring is my favourite season here in Europe. I love when the snow disappears and the weather starts being warm. We see the blossoms, new leaves and flowers wakening up, birds singing, the sun’s shining, time to get our bikes out and enjoy cycling, tulip, daffodil, crocus, lily of the valley, hyacinth, blue bell – simply wonderful!

as the sun shines
sweet spring, enjoy life’s offer
a welcoming sight

buds coming out
take time to smell the flowers
sweet-smelling spring

    Ah … I did so love those places where there were just two seasons, I admit it … though there were moments when I did miss the autumn leaves and a snowy landscape … but I stoically went forward enjoying the eternal balmy sunshine or flash rainy days. A lovely haibun!
