Slice of Life #20 Challenge Day 29/31: Signs of Growth

Slice of Life #20 Challenge Day 29/31: 
Signs of Growth 

From darkness, despair,/
and mess of barren season:/
fresh growth emerges. 

Spring reminds me that somehow growth and beauty prevail after long, difficult seasons of dormancy.

  1. Love these signs of spring and hope!

  2. Lovely haiku. “Mess of barren season” captures what’s happening in my yard, too. I also see tulips sprouting against the refuse from last fall, but it has been too cold for me to clean it all up. I can’t wait to see the flowers bud in your yard.

  3. GAH - third time I've tried to comment. SIGH. We are just a few days behind you in terms of green shoots. So looking forward to them here. Your haiku, especially the evocative middle line, is lovely.

  4. Fresh growth emerges, clinging to this hope amid the darkness and despair of the pandemic. There's something healing in the colors of spring, isn't there?
