Sprung – A Haiku

sprung

Gloomy equinox

Does so little to banish

Winter’s cold hard knocks.

I’ve been very quiet recently, but as it is World Poetry Day, I thought it appropriate to post a little haiku written last year. Enjoy! 🙂

January Sunset

The soft sunset sky

Boasts a spectacular spectrum,

Flushed with toasty shades of burnt orange

And juicy mandarin,

To the delicate tastes of lemon and lime,

Blending into feathery lavender

And multi-hued azure,

Spreading to star-speckled sapphire

And deepest velvety indigo,

All flecked with the blazing coral

Of airplanes and their trails;

Beneath it all,

A disc of burnished gold

Hovers on the horizon,

Before succumbing to slumber.
