Subtle Change ... for One Deep Breath

Budding Daffodils in my garden, January 8, 2007

Here are my haiku for today's One Deep Breath. The first one goes with the photo, the second speaks about my current state of being!!

slow swell of buds
tucked between leaves
sing yellow daffodils

***

flutter of lashes
deepening breath
sleep overtakes me

My daffodils are coming up too. Not as beautifully as yours yet, but still the promise of spring.

I love the secret beginnings of spring happening during what we think of as winter. Though this year the flowers have been blooming all year.

Both haiku are beautiful! And the photo is gorgeous.

Daffodils are my wife's favorite flower. Too hot in FL to grow.

I like the second poem, to sleep. :)

It really does seem too soon for daffodils though! Your photo and haiku are lovely just the same.
