The Haiku Challenge 2012

The Haiku Challenge 2012 – Day 19 – The Four Seasons

For Day 19, the prompt is “Write a haiku on your favorite season”. I love every season for its own unique characteristics. So it has to be The Four Seasons for me.

Day 19:

The Four Seasons

Spring
A fresh perspective
New beginnings. Birds rejoice
Fragrant flowers bloom
Summer
Summer vacations
Memories of lazy days  
With family, friends
Winter
Warm clothes, cozy home
Wrapped in hugs. Bowl of soup
Winter quilt waiting
Fall
Drifting autumn leaves 
On the driveway.  Sleepy blooms
Wait as spring draws close
Written for The Haiku Challenge 2012 – Day 19 – February 19th – Theme: Seasons Type: Kigo
