4 Spring Zen Haikus

The cold cycle ends.

The spring lotus flourishes.

New spring blooms within.


Goodbye icicles. 

Sharp ice dissolves from the sun.

Lily petals bloom.


Here comes the new sun.

Smiles grow as the new sun glows.

The new sun is zen.


What’s the song of spring?

Growth, change, flourish, and rebirth. 

This makes my heart glow.

Transitions- Autumn

fall-nature-animated-gif-4

As we leave behind Spring and Summer;

The sweet scent of something anew fills my nostrils. 

What is it? What is this new scent?

Rainfall, gentle chill of the wind, richly scented soft amber leaves;

I can recognize that smell anywhere!

It’s not just a sensation that blows my olfactory senses ablaze;

It’s the early set of the great sun and the early rise of the Autumn moon.

It’s the temperature dive that makes every nerve ending within my being tingle.

It’s the absorption of the deep greens which bleeds into the reds and oranges we have come to know and love. 

Yes, I can feel it in every fiber of my being.

I can hear the gentle breeze from my bedroom window.

I can see people changing their wardrobes from tanks and shorts to coats and boots. 

I can smell delightly decadent foods with pumpkin, spice, and cinnamon sugar.

I can feel the warmth of the fall transition all around me.

I can taste the autumn sweets as I devour them bite by bite. 

I love this season for every reason I have described above.

Are you ready?
