Northern Haiku - Poem by Michael Shepherd

In the April wind, white cherry blossom;

On the ground, snowflakes.

    Kenneth, yes, an improvement.
    I got the idea from Lenchen's weather report today...
    Yes, the 'rule' of leaving it to the reader to link two independent statements does stimulate the visual imagination?

    A suggestion...if I may

    white cherry blossom
    rides on April winds
    snowflakes on the ground

    Either way there is a beautiful image portrayed. Great haiku!
