lovely sign of spring
wild violet along path
welcome first blossom
This haiku is my response to
Carpe Diem’s Time Challenge – first blossoms

Truth in Flowers
Redbuds in bloom set the stage,
say no blues today.
As foreseen by the dandelion,
violets attest to that truth.
Faces turned to the sun, phlox agree.
The final reward on this day of hiking?
Ever cheerful bluebells.
Common Violet & Dandelion
Today is Day 11 of National/Global Poetry Writing Month. The prompt
for napowrimo.net is to write about specific meanings of flowers,
with a link to a glossary of flower meanings (in text, here).
In this instance those flower meanings would be:
violet – faithfulness
dandelion – Rustic Oracle
phlox – unanimity
bluebell – constancy
