Cherry Blossom Haiku

waiting for swifts
the grey sky dances
with blossom petals

*

dusk
a young rabbit eats
fallen blossoms

walking stick
as I gaze across this glen
a goldfinch

And the young rabbit watches; a fine pair, Juliet!

I like the idea that the sky is waiting for the swifts.

Your haiku both are lovely, but the second is an occasion for a real smile. I didn't know until yesterday that our state flower, the bluebonnet, is known in Spanish as conejo. The word means "rabbit", and was used to describe the bluebonnet because the top of the blossoms look like a rabbit's tail!
