A Barren Heath

on a barren heath
winters drab colors hold sway
spring a dream to come

dear melanie...i've been watching morning glories turning brown with recent night frosts...as i fingered their perfect pods and felt the seeds still too green to harvest, i too found myself dreaming of the first tender shoots of spring.
yes, even now spring is dreaming in brown landscapes. thank you for listening and writing their song.

Amazing things happening in nature as the earth has turned and she changes her dress!! You say it so well!!

Activities of nature, changing of the seasons are a beauty of life that every human being should experience. Your haiku is such an inspiration.
