Hawthorn haiku



hawthorn blooms

under a sky

of skylarksong


*


suddenly

the air full of house martins -

the scent of hawthorn

Lovely. I'm missing spring already ... in this windy gales!

The hawthorn here has already reached the snowing stage - there are more petals on the floor than the tree...!

Lovely haiku and photo. Haikus seem particularly suited to spring, don't they? I just saw my first barn swallow of the summer, brought to mind again by your house martins.

My Hawthorn trees had more blossom on them this year. I know my Dad hears Skylarks and sees Housemartins where he is in the country, at the foot of the South Downs. x
