Haiku Friday: Spring Things

March Madness
I hate basketball.
Squeaky sneakers, dumb brackets.
Will March never end?

Pretty Purple
Crocuses peek out
from the cold Earth and shiver
in the pale sunshine.

Winter Coat

Goodbye, oppressor.
I don't care if I get cold,
I'll wear you no more.

Luckily my husband is not a sports guy.

And the winter coat? I hate 'em and rarely wear them anyway unless it is really frigid.

Happy Spring!

Each ‘ku is unique
and the photos … perfection!
Everything does pass ;--)

Today’s ‘Ku is at
Sacred Ruminations not
Small Reflections … here
Hugs and blessings,

Melissa said...

Amen. I hate basketball too, and I'm in NC. I'm a transplant so I use that as my excuse. Great haikus. I love reading them every week.

Oh, you're one of those people who wears shorts as soon as the thermometer crawls up to 40 degrees? When I visit my MN in-laws in their so-called "spring", they're always out in flip-flops as I'm buried under parkas and snowboots.

AMEN to March Madness being over. I hate basketball (which is blasphemous here in Indiana) and the squeaks shoes make on the court is maddening!

I can't wait to put that darn coat away!

What a great spring haiku all around. Love those flowers :)

Chuck that coat. It's gonna be April in four days. We need some spring clothing options now.
