One Single Impression: Warmth

Saplings at woods edge —
gray bark ends in budding leaves
unfolding in warmth.

As I wrote last week, I have reviewed Ackworth Born's book The Art of Haiku.
If you would like a resource for writing haiku, please take the time to read the review.



  1. Have you ever run out of words? I studied Haiku in Japan and one of the ladies claims she quit. Ran out of new words she said. I can't imagine that.

    Your work is nice.

    I posted a picture of my furry mother for Mother's Day. She was so special we considered her part of our family.

  3. I love 'budding leaves unfolding in warmth'! That's exactly how I felt a few weeks ago as my pecan trees started to leaf out.

    The deleted comment was mine, I was logged in as my cats! :)

  4. Andree, lovely haiku. Perfect for the theme! Thank you for the link to the "Art of Haiku." :)

  5. your words perfectly capture the warmth of hope found in spring

  6. This is beautiful... a perfect expression of the feel of Spring.

  7. There is beauty on the exterior of those woods that is fed by the mystery and depth of the woods themselves. Wonderful poem, wonderful photo. Baby leaves intrigue me.
