crystal branches glint
with sunrise–shaking with joy
hands capture this now

    Sometimes I think this waiting for spring is so much more the important part of spring. This being teased in anticipation of life bursting forth and your line, “shaking with joy” says so much of that anticipation. Love this!

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Thank you. It seems spring is quite the flirt this year. She’s sashayed in and out . Today was a day of teen temps and sunshine, but my daffodils are coming up. That makes me very happy.

  3. As far as springtimes go, this is a pretty wintry one, isn’t it? The beauty of this takes one’s mind off the chill.

      Joseph Harker,
      Welcome back! It is too wintry for this southern bred gal. Chills cling to me every day. I do love the crystal scenes though, almost as much as your visits. 😉

    Roxie 😉

    shaking with joy, like this phrase, I never tire of seeing trees covered in winters dew.

    • Yousei Hime says:

      We had an ice storm two days ago. This morning we had clear skies and the light on the ice covered branches … well, its one of those breathless moments. Thank you for the visit and comment.

    Wonderful haiku.
    Describes a view i like to see more than i usually do

    • Yousei Hime says:

      We just had another wintry morning. We had freezing rain, sleet and snow for about 24 hours, and everything was coated in crystal. Quite delightful as long as you didn’t have to de-ice your vehicle and go out on the roads.

    dawning light
    creates a wonderland

    the split with two lines above and then the third below the image works nicely in context.. well written 🙂

  9. Gordon Mason says:

    first 5 words are a great image

    • Yousei Hime says:

      Gordon Mason,
      Thank you for visiting, reading and commenting. I like the image too, but the morning was even more glorious. There is something fay about an ice coated sunrise. We should have one tomorrow, if the sun is bright enough through the ice storm.

    The image and the haiku seem to be two of a kind, and it makes you wonder which one of them was made first. Beautiful.

    • Yousei Hime says:

      They are indeed. In this instance I found a photo taken earlier in the month and took a closer look. I’d always wanted to capture one of these early morning frosts. 🙂 So first the image, then the words.

    Beautiful lines to go with a lovely image.

If you leave tracks, I'll find you.
