Awaiting Spring – A Haiku
The RonovanWrites #Weekly #Haiku #Poetry Prompt #Challenge #94 words are: “Diamonds & Pearls.”
The poetic opportunities presented by these two words are endless. The most logical assumption is that “diamonds and pearls” are a girl’s best friend! At least we can all hope.
For me, it is really hard not to link these words without a romantic notion slipping into my thoughts. Instead, I will concentrate on the arrival of spring to the Rocky Mountains. It has to be coming soon… I am told the magic day is Mother’s Day!
On my daily walk today with Sugar and Spice, I felt the cold fingers of the north wind blowing down from the towering mountains into the plains far below. I shivered and watched as black clouds billowed and formed taking turns hiding the sun. I can tell rain is coming, and that is a good thing.
Snow diamonds gleam –
beneath the pearly moonbeams,
spring still has not sprung.
Silver is still waiting for spring!
