The Gift Of Spring (Haiku) Poem by Seamus O' Brian

The Gift Of Spring (Haiku)

Rating: 5.0

slender green shoot
shoulders aside mass of snow
finds a breath of spring

a den of rock and ice
once alone a bear awakens
to nurse the gift of spring

a branch aloft sways
not pining autumn's leaves but
unfolding buds of spring

cardinal pauses
carries a twig; plans her nest
upon the boughs of spring

degree by degree
tilts the weight of the world
to share the gift of spring

Thank you, good poet, for your kind words and thoughts. Acts of kindness often cost little, yet give much. I have observed that you are indeed generous with your kindness, sir, and for that I know you will be blessed.

Hey, Neal! This time I notice and appreciate, in the last stanza, tilts the weight of the world—phrasing scientific and lyrical combined. -Glen

Semis my friend, you have made me finally like haiku, I would never have thought of layering it as you have....pure genius! ! ! It is Poets like you my friend that takes steps beyond the norm..establishing uniqueness! ! ! And the words flow in perfect harmony....I have looked at haiku as math until now, not anymore! ! Awesome! ! ! !

Bill, I cannot tell you how glad I am to hear that my efforts at haiku have affected your opinion of them! I have actually looked upon them as a way of focusing my desire to write when I don't have the time to write a lengthier piece. I just force all my effort into 3 lines, and it seems very doable. Thank you so much for your gracious thoughts!
