Suddenly , Spring !


BLOSSOM BRUISED
PAPERWEIGHT BLIZZARD :
SUDDENLY , SPRING

Purple Flowers
Buried in snowdrifts
Winter’s wounds

Coldly called
Picture captions
Bruised Haiku

February’s freeze
The most unkindest
Cut of all

Ice burns
Blossoms braving
Friendly fire

Dark ice
Treacherous irony
Snowed petals

Tentative
Tenderness wilts
Betrayed

Frothy white
February snow
Black ice below

Smothered
By snowflakes
Spring blossom

Bravehearts
Purple pierced
Leafy spears

Freeze black,
White Snow ! Still,
Flowers grow

Snowstorm ?
Spring Blossoms know
To weather worse

Ice-wounded
Some flowers die
More shall grow

Brave Blossoms
Know that Spring always
Defeats the Snow

Each February
Paperweight Blizzard
Then Spring

Post Blizzard
Burying Blossom
Suddenly ,Spring
