Daffodils Awake!

Little sprouts of green
Inching toward a sky of blue
Daffodils awake!

Last week, I was surprised to see the daffodils sprouting. They were sleeping under the largest pile of snow in the yard, tucked under the leaves of fall. I thought it’d be a while before they’d make an appearance. As soon as the snow melted, the sprouts appeared. Now I watch them grow and wait to see their flowers. The daffodils are sure to keep up the good fight, even if winter hangs on for a while.

January day
Earth sleeps beneath its blanket
Resting until spring

As I was dreaming up the above poem – a haiku – I wondered if the earth is ready to wake up yet. Probably not!

Have a good day, and thank you for following and reading my blog.
