The whole creation is filled to the brim with sexual energy, especially in spring!?:) Or is it just in my mind!?:)

firebird said...

Lovely poem and photo! Worth rereading again and again...

(but I'm SO jealous while snow and biting sleet are covering my just-hatched crocuses...here in NYC)

Ahh- Your words play the dance of nature so well.

sage said...

nice haiku, I thought, but is it? 2-5-5? I still like it and its hopeful message. I love the birds singing in the morning, even up here you can here them sing before sunrise, spring can't be far behind

dsnake1 said...

ha, i see you are trying a haiku, and a good one too!

and a lovely bonus photo to go along. :)

Rethabile said...

Magnificent! I like. You've captured it in such a way that I didn't even recall Wordsworth's daffodils, which i always did upon seeing a bunch of them. Good job.

steve said...

went to a concert last night - these could be the proud performers even performing as an audience to the Spring around them - good picture!

Daffodils were blooming the early March day my daughter was born in S. Carolina (two decades ago now...)

Don, thanks!! I hope for the better.

Thanks Kai!!

Gautami, I did and left a comment. thank you!!

Thanks Russell!! Spring is definitely that.

I just say no to snow. thanks Nancy!!

Thanks Janice!!

Thank you Lyrically speaking!!

Thanks Polona!! A little change is good for the soul, and a lot of change is good for my pocket.

Nea, all applause is greatly appreciated. Thank you!!

Thanks Beaman!!

Borut, you are absolutely right. Love is in the air!!

Thanks Vivian!! That's why I love the South!!

Amalendu, glad to have you back. Thank you!!

And GEL your comment plays me so well. Thank you!!

Sage, my favorite type of music. In Western haiku the syllable count is not as important as Japanese, so I'm told. I think the last line could be written stronger. Still thinking about it.
Thank you!!

Dsnake, don't do it often, but once in awhile I try. Thank you!!

Rethabile, WOW, to be compared with Wordsworth. What a high compliment, thank you!!

Steve that's what they reminded me of, a proud audience. A Spring baby, the best kind!!
