April A to Z: A haiku a day for 26 days

Today’s letter in the April A to Z Challenge is C and I have chosen C for Cherry Blossom. These beautiful trees are beginning to bloom as the air and light soften with the milder weather. For more information on the April A to Z Challenge or to see other contributions, click here. I have chose to write haiku with an accompanying photograph, but everyone as their own take on the challenge.

princess of spring in Japan
and in my garden


I am also including a link to this lovely song Dance of the Cherry Trees by Irish singer-songwriter John Spillane

    Thanks for the lovely haiku and the song! Just last week my husband and I were driving and turned down a street lined with cherry trees — we paused in our conversation to take in the beauty of the moment. Visiting from A to Z. http://houserevivals.blogspot.com/
