       In Macon Georgia, each year they have what is called "The Cherry Blossom Festivel". It is all about these stupid pink blossoms on the cherry trees. For a week everything is pink. Ladies hats and dresses, men's shirts, cars, businesses, beer, etc. anyway the local paper runs a Haiku contes each year for Haikus relating to the cherry blossom, below are two I submitted. Cleao also submitted two, hers are better than mine. Check hers out too. cleocollier

    Make the font bigger!! Double Spacing Back to recent posts.


    Still awed by thousands
    My pink delicate beauty
    Yet modest and plain

    A crescendo of growth
    Inspiring in rebirth
    Peacefulness abounds

      pretty in pink. well, maybe not everyone! I gave up pink years ago. moved to crimson. not exactly red, not exactly pink. deeper. aged. like wine!

    I like these haikus. nice job.

      According to the count of syllables, first one is a perfect haiku ( 5/7/5.... need I say that ! ) It also embodies the spirit of the festival.

    But this is the second one that deserves the prize for capturing the timeless theme of continuity which makes these celebrations relevant.

    Enjoy the shades of pink :)
