first the leaves

#Haiku Happenings #5: Janice’s latest #tanka for my current #haikai challenge!


the cherry tree waits

gnarled limbs breathe in April mist


spring splendour that brings the bees

first the leaves then blossom clouds

©️2018 OnthelandA tanka in response to Haikai Challenge #26 First [Cherry] Blossoms. I have always enjoyed blossoms when they appear but never before had I wondered when they would show up. Now I know that here, at 44 degrees North, cherry trees bloom in late April or early May. The photo is courtesy of Pixabay.com.
