In the garden

Today it was a nice sunny day here in The Netherlands so my wife and I did some gardening … After the winter the garden looks now again a garden … so we hope that we can enjoy our garden a lot this spring and upcoming summer …

Sprouting grass moon

Today it’s full moon, the full moon of April. This full moon is called ‘pink-moon’ or ‘sprouting grass moon’. I have written several haiku about the moon. I am a moonlover … maybe that’s the result of my evening and night-shifts at work … so my work as an oncology-nurse has made me a moonlover … I don’t know …

Today I love to share another haiku about the full moon:

she, the full moon,
looks into a mirror of soft green -
sprouting grasses

at last spring

Just an hour ago or so I walked into my garden and saw a wonderful piece of natural life on my fence. I was fascinated and the sparrows didn’t fly away or stopped with what they were doing. Really … spring is here.

“Shaken not Stirred”-elfje

What a wonderful responses I was granted with on the “shaken not stirred”-elfje at my Carpe Diem Haiku Kai weblog … so I thought to compose another one.
The “shaken not stirred-elfje works with syllables instead of words … it’s built with 1, 2, 3, 4 & 1 syllable(s) spread over 5 lines. Here is a new “shaken not stirred”_elfje.

green
leaves
bursting out
finally spring
joy

A nice one I think. Have a good weekend …
