Out like a lamb – Spring Haiku

It is another sunny day in Rochester, NY – the temperatures are in the normal range (40 degrees F.), not the summer weather we experienced last week.  My gardens have not been bothered by the hard frosts of the last few nights.  Our house sits on a slight down slope and is well protected by some large Norway maples,  arborvitae and Norway spruce.

Spring Haiku


Yellow blooms drift down
Leaves emerge from winter’s sleep
Lilacs bloom to soon.


(For my neighbors)
Neighbors yell and scold
Words said, George Carlin blushes
Ah, spring has arrived.


Winter’s cat – snow paws
Spring’s cat dreams of a bird now
I dream of no cats
