Warm
Spring sun
Awakening new life

Songbirds
Singing spring
Celebrating new season

Branches
Buds bursting
New spring green

Wind
Trees swaying
Season honoring dance

Flowers
First growth
Riot of colors

Grass
Dry tinder
Green beneath brown

Squirrel
Spring foraging
Pine cone seeds

Blackbirds
Heads cocked
Listening for worms

Sunshine
Wind, hail
Spring weather prevail

Today I’m trying a new poet form, thanks to today’s prompt, the hay(na)ku. Created by the poet Eileen Tabios and named by Vince Gotera, the hay(na)ku is a variant on the haiku. A hay(na)ku consists of a three-line stanza, where the first line has one word, the second line has two words, and the third line has three words.
