Spring Haiku

morning stillness
forget-me-nots grow
among daylily plants

many Springs
yellow primroses
near an old tree

hosta grow again
around the ash tree stump –
the tree that fell in 2018

day grows more clear
primroses grow past
the flower garden

rain today
red geraniums
by grey windows

work in the kitchen
red tulip and new ferns
by the cedar fence

new leaves
on the birch tree
study window in Spring

small flowers
near the kitchen windows
first hummingbird

Carol Purington – Farm Song

A post from March 28, 2021 at Woodslawn Farm:

Farm Song on the Touchstone Distinguished Book Awards Shortlist for 2020 (which links to The Haiku Foundation post).

Please see the Poetry page for Carol Purington (1949 – 2020) at Woodslawn Farm for more information. The page links to her obituary.

I am grateful for Carol’s friendship and support. Farm Song is a wonderful achievement.
