Suze Francis

S P R I N G  H A I K U

A green mantilla –
It smudges the space
between branches and sky.

One pink bud, nine green –
A whole fist expands
and explodes.

The hard new growth, packed tight
pushes up.
While soft old petals open wide, curl and fall.

Birds twitter and trill.
Still,
the air has a chill.
