A Floral Haiku


Frost comes, flowers fade.
Snow falls; winter blankets all.
Primrose sprouts through snow.

  1. ah…I left a message but I guess it didn’t send…

    great haiku, Melinda, but I am having trouble seeing the metaphor, unless the whole piece is a metaphor for life…and, i could be wrong, but I thought haiku were written without the use of figurative language…with so many variations nowadays it’s hard to keep up with what’s accepted…

    nonetheless, this is a beautiful piece🙂


    1. Thank you🙂 I love those hardy primroses. They grow where no other plant wants to and they come up through snow and all in late Feb/early March. Their bright petals thumb their noses at winter🙂
