Out There

Here's a 5-7-5 haiku that happened just a few minutes ago. In fact, I haven't subjected it to even minimal critical evaluation; I might want to disown it later on. Still ...

sunny day in March
jostled by an eager wind
the bare branches spring

I LOVE Haiku. It's so beautiful and spare.

That one's very nice :)

Thanks. The more I read and write haiku, the more I appreciate its possibilities and riches. I like "beautiful and spare."

I like the idea of a "bare branch spring" sort of like a no-frills spring (you have the sun, but not the warmth), as well as what I assume was the more direct reading, "the branches spring in the wind" -- the verb becoming a noun, the nouns becoming an adjective...at least in my tawdry mind. It's a keeper.

Yeah, what the wind was doing to the branches caught my eye. When I realized it was making them spring, the haiku was all but written. That March begins in winter and moves to spring was obviously in there somewhere, the movement of the seasons in "bare banches spring."
