first crocus

    I second that, good juxtaposition.

    a crocus bud
    in the warmth of a hand
    opens up

    grey dawn...
    a lingering rivermist
    softens the crocus

    Lovely, Ed!
    And because my eyes first went skyward
    with line 1, it felt like a sudden fall...
    great moment!

    Hi Ed,

    It's amazing how shadows find their place in haiku poems!!
    Your poem is one more classic example of that!!

    news of a neighbor's
    passing--
    not knowing what
    time it is
