    Haiku prompt: APRIL

    Hello haiku writers!

    A challenge, if you choose to accept it, is to write a poem (or more than one) on the theme of April. You do not have to mention he month and instead use a season word that expresses a sense of April where you are right now.

    One from me:

    paddock gate
    horses graze around
    the edge of spring


    And an older one:

    Palm Sunday
    the slow procession
    of daffodils


    (published in Ephemerae 1A)

    Kokuu,

    Here is my attempt.

    flowers bloom
    on trails of rolling green
    snakes coil ready

    Please don't take anything I say as anything more than just a normal person's thoughts on the topic. I'm just stumbling through life trying to be helpful, but really don't know much.
