Happy First Day of Spring

High up in the sky
all day long the clouds danced
great first day of Spring

   I hope your first day of spring was wonderful. Did you do anything to celebrate?  It is also Palm Sunday and there certainly are a lot of palms around my neighborhood. Can you write a haiku about your day?
    I've been having a good day.  I got to play with my water colors again and that always makes for a great day.

 Hold the world gently in your hands.

    spring-- dripping new life

    Happy Spring, Joy! Simply magnificent!


    1. Dearest Cory, my poetry sister. Thank you for sharing your fantastic spring haiku.

  2. oops! forgot one word in my haiku, Joy!

    Brush strokes waltz across
    Joy's canvas; watercolors
    spring---dripping new life.

    1. Ah, that waltzing makes all the difference. This is lovely. Isn't it great that spring has finally arrived? I hope you are having a great one. I've started seeds and am trying to grow mushrooms.

  3. Lovely image, Joy! Happy Spring!
