Haiku, – ‘April – inity’

Posted in My Poetry with tags , , , , on April 1, 2010 by echostains

I thought I would do some Haiku for the month of April  Such a lot happens this month that it seemed a shame to miss the opportunity.  The first event of course is April Fools day, 1st April – so that should certainly be included.  Then there’s the Easter festival, derived from the Ancient fertility Goddess Eostre.  New life is the general message of this time. As well as the religious aspects there’s also the birth chicks, Easter eggs and  flowers (Sweet peas and daisies are associated with April).  We also have St George’s day on the 22nd of this month.  However, because this Haiku is going to be a trintiy – only three of the aforementioned were chosen:-

Court jester Gonella by Jean Fouquet

Greetings!  King of Fools

Tricking the Spring as he steps

Quickly – with bells on.

 

 

All hail the daybreak!

Yellow downy headed chick

On this clear morning

 

The Resurrection by Fra Angelico

Behold the dawning!

From death has life arisen

And we are joyful!
