1. Haiku YearHaiku Poem About Months Of The Year
Snowdrops bow their pure white heads
To the sun's glory.
Fresh green buds appear
Indicating spring will soon
Energize us all.
Lambs gambol in fields
Frisky with the joys of life
Bluebells stand so proud
Beneath trees so sparsely dressed
Fresh green leaves unfold.
Much awaited sound
Echoes heard amid dense trees
Cuckoo has arrived.
Parks and gardens burst
With sounds and vibrant colours
Beaches become full
Of families having fun
In sand and big waves.
Ripe golden harvest
Burning sun in azure skies
On telephone wires ready
To migrate down south.
Red and gold leaves fall,
Crunchy as cornflakes beneath
Feet on a crisp morn.
Frosty webs sparkle
In the early morning sun
First few flakes of snow
Dust gardens like icing on
A chocolate cake.Latest Shared Story
