My First Haiku!

Haiku has become quite a hot topic in an online writer’s community of which I am part. Upon the challenge of a particular friend (sunshine), I have taken my first feeble steps into the world of Haiku. I’m sure a Haiku purist could cite a number of reasons why this isn’t truly haiku, but what the hey! I had fun writing it. I hope you enjoy reading it!

Snow succumbs to sun
budding blossoms ache to show
nature’s blushing hues

    This is beautiful, Rick. As always with a good Haiku, so much is said in only a few words.

    Thanks, Amy. I had fun writing it but it definitely is harder than it looks!
