Late winter —
a crocus breaks through
the melting snow.

Late winter -
a crocus breaks through
the melting snow.

Link with 939: Breaking through snow.

[The crocus, a harbinger of the Winter's demise, also announces Spring's coming.]

Crocuses are such a natural inspiration for haiku! You've done a good job on this one.

Pamela said...

John McDonald said...

Borut said...

Ours are much more fortunate, no snow, they come out just like that...!:)

A tough little guy, or gal. Can't hold back that which is meant to be.

polona said...

beautiful observation!
the crocuses here don't have to struggle through snow this year...

Masago said...

Aurora: Thank you!

Pamela: Yes, although they aren't as common around here (that I know of). :-)

Floots: I'd love to be there to see that (like cherry blossoms in Nihon).

John: Thanks.

Borut: They're just sissy's this year.

Pat: Ah, so true.

Polona: As Borut mentioned...they got off easy this year. :-)
