 Happy Spring
Late Night Poets
April Poetry Contest
Haiku
~
is five syllables
followed by seven others
then there are five more

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

First Place 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Stubborn snow and ice–
split open by a flower.
Spring is impatient.

Second Place

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

High snowcapped mountains.
Earth parched, longing for her tears.
A journey waiting

Third Place 

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

river on pathway
whirlygigs land in mudslush
sprouting tender babes

Marcoosh2

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

merry tulips dance
new-made            rainbows
         goblets             drink
i have drunken well !

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

quiet morning sky
falcon drifting circles high
some small life will end

LateNightMuze

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

a little old twig

floating down the river’s edge

makes room for new growth

B9Patric

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

the first buds of spring

grow up through the frozen earth

greeted by the sun

B9Patric

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ 

ice and snow melting

green sprouts growing everywhere

it’s finally spring

B9Patric

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I dream secret dreams
Like the wind that steals the pain
Dancing in my soul

Cally2001

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I sit in darkness
My thoughts wild like balls of fire
Earth moves with tremor

Cally2001

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

The heavens are blue
Its white fluff bows to the earth.
Souls sway in its space

Cally2001

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Life barren from seed
Lost in its magnificence
marks the marble stone

Cally2001

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Eyes with no water
The soul would not have no depth
A season so dry
