.

a flurry of hail
clatters against the window -
bare cherry trees bend.


I wrote another haiku about the hail, you can read it on Winter Haiku here.

Nice one, Juliet! Haiku (especially yours) is a good picture-frame for the natural world.

Thanks for visiting my blog today, and saying hello to Butterscotch Bunny. I noticed a visitor from Edinburgh before, a few weeks ago maybe...I wonder if it was you!

I loved your haiku today, and also the pictures from both the botanic gardens. Makes me very anxious for spring to appear.

I LOVE the sound of this haiku.
"clatters against the window"
and envisioning those "bare cherry trees bend(ing)"

i agree about it sounding like a wood block print! you really framed a strong image there, and one that i'd like to be able to hop inside of!

You'll enjoy her.
