Changing Seasons

My second offering of Haikus. A tribute to the seasons. And I am in love. 





Gold leaf hazy sunshine
Dancing to gusty winds falls
Crushed under feet.

Glistening icicles
Shards of diamonds by night
Melted nothingness.

Drops of the first rain
Pearls drench a parched earth
Long awaited Life begins.

Lazy midday sun
Slumbering in green meadows 
Shattered reverie.

Buried seed bitter snow
Green shoots struggle, break forth
Silent resilience.

    2. The Prompt is all about taking creative liberties, it's about where it takes you! Thanks so much for linking to #ThePrompt and apologies for being a bit late commenting, Halloween and my in-laws arriving scuppered yesterday!
