A cold spring

Today’s blossom blows in
on a cloud of snow.
Spring turns back to winter.

Cherry blossom petals.
A pale pink snow
clings to the cold glass.

We’ve had a cold spring here in Hawke’s Bay (actually the whole of NZ has been cool and snowy), and these are two haiku I wrote for an online writing course I am doing with the Iowa Writing School … and yes, I mean THE Iowa Writing School!

I am enjoy the challenge of being set tasks that make me think about the placement of each word. Even in pasting these, I have revised the first poem and its better.  That’s it … enjoy!
