For the month of March, each day I am writing and posting a slice of my life, hosted by Two Writing Teachers.
Slice of Life #21 Challenge Day 9:
Longing for Daffodils
Last July I bought an old farmhouse and moved into an established neighborhood. With the arrival of each season, I discover new things about my house and yard. Lately, I have been anticipating spring and cannot wait to see if anything blooms. My daughter's favorite flowers are daffodils. To me, daffodils represent the end of winter and a time for rebirth.
|These daffodils grew outside the house I rented last year. |
They were lovely.
In thinking about my yard and in anticipation of what it might look soon, I wrote this haiku:
tease. Snow melts. I yearn for buds,/
hope for daffodils.
In my daydreams I imagine that I will wake up one morning and find daffodils sprouting in my yard. However, if this doesn't happen, then I can plant my own.
