Gate to Spring





open gate to spring,
throw out the sunflower seeds,
grey pigeons hover


grey pigeons hover
 muddy stones and barren wells, 
winter frost melting  


winter frost melting
locked windows and bolted doors,
open gate to spring


Written for Few Miles Haiku Challenge 2012 for the month of February:   Day 27- Paint the Image-  Thanks for the visit and comments.

  4. you're doing an amazing job with the haiku challenge, some really nice pieces. I like the full circle aspect and the notions of gates as you depict here, especially in the way you surrounded the image of these gates with elements from nature, the mud, the seeds, the frost- great job.

    1. I, too, am impressed by the way you have "circled round" this theme. I am also appreciative of the positive note of your circling. Thank you for an uplifting (and not a mind-numbing) read!
