Spring Haiku

I was reading all of the Haiku entries at Chris' blog (Notes from the Trenches) and decided that I wanted to write one. I'd love to be able to write one praising Springtime, like this one:

Spring time is here now
Daffodils, tulips, and more
Rising from the ground

or even one like this one

The sun is now warm
Shining on me all day long
How I love the sun

or maybe this one

Beautiful weather
Bike riding, kite flying, Yes!
Spring time warms my face

But instead, I can only write:

Daffodils drooping
Bowing down to the cold dirt
Snow in April? Yuck

Okay, the snow has just melted because we had a high of 40 degrees today, but the daffodils have melted as well.

By the way, the photo credit for this one goes to T (who doesn't understand why he can't have a digital camera of his own.)

Spring in Michigan
Better in California
Where we miss you all

Good picture of the daffodils. A.J. doesn't understand why T can't have a digital camera of his own either!

Oooooooooooh, those daffodils would have been absolutely many of them!

I suppose there is a proper rhythm to Haiku . . . but I never did "get" poetry! How's this?

Breezy in Coarsegold
See the bright green leaves wave
How nice not to see snow
