  2. Your handful of words brings to mind a paragraph in The Wind and the Willows, celebrating the advent of spring. Nothing in here about cherry blossoms, but I think you’ll understand why, when I read your haiku, I thought of it:

    Such a rich chapter it had been, when one came to look back on it all!
    With illustrations so numerous and so very highly-coloured! The pageant
    of the river bank had marched steadily along, unfolding itself in
    scene-pictures that succeeded each other in stately procession. Purple
    loosestrife arrived early, shaking luxuriant tangled locks along the
    edge of the mirror whence its own face laughed back at it. Willow-herb,
    tender and wistful, like a pink sunset cloud, was not slow to follow.
    Comfrey, the purple hand-in-hand with the white, crept forth to take its
    place in the line; and at last one morning the diffident and delaying
    dog-rose stepped delicately on the stage, and one knew, as if
    string-music had announced it in stately chords that strayed into a
    gavotte, that June at last was here. One member of the company was still
    awaited; the shepherd-boy for the nymphs to woo, the knight for whom the
    ladies waited at the window, the prince that was to kiss the sleeping
    summer back to life and love. But when meadow-sweet, debonair and
    odorous in amber jerkin, moved graciously to his place in the group,
    then the play was ready to begin.

    • What a delicious reminder of Kenneth Grahame’s wonderful book. It is a word feast . Thank you for reminding me of it, perhaps I’ll reread it one day soon!. I’m delighted that my tiny haiku brought this to your mind.

      I think I have finally figured out how to respond to comments and have the response land in email too! I have wondered for months, how you were doing it ! (I did not have my comments set to come into my email until recently.)
