You make them sound very eager (even desperate). But they would be for light as we are.

The alliteration of the first line intrigued me; however, you did drive me to the dictionary. Nice haiku.

a beautiful capture of how spring makes us feel...just like those blossoms! (i knew my latin would come in handy someday!)

Vixen said...

A poem as lovely as those blossoms. Very nice.

I love cherry blossoms and the phot is just lovely, so graceful. I confess, I too had to consult the dictionary... and just when I thought my brain was full!

Thank you for this beautiful haiku. Yes, I had to go to the dictionary myself, but I shouldn't have needed too: I took more than enough Latin and know what sakura blossoms are. You are inspiring.
