Haiku Poem – 新緑

flowers open
spring cold bites
yields green

(Ben version)
はな さいて きゅうに しんりょく はる に なる

(Michiko version)
はな おちて あおば の しげる はる の あさ

My home is in Des Moines, Iowa. With the coming of spring, the weather started to get warm and buds appeared on the trees. Soon after that, flowers began to emerge. However, then the weather changed. It became cold again. Due to the low temperatures and recent rainfall, the flowers already fell from the trees. The good news is that the leaves and the grass are a verdant green.
