Blessed Ostara (Eostre)

Ostara, or Eostre, is the Germanic Goddess of the Dawn who is associated with spring and the Spring Equinox. This connection is made through the early English Christian monk Bede (673 – 735). It is believed that the naming of the Christian holy day, Easter, comes from that source. (John Beckett)

Today, I honor the Spring (Vernal) Equinox with a haiku written from the view outside my window this morning.

Dawn pinked sky glints
over barren tree silhouettes
robin song greets spring
