So true too, such moments will never last, so when in view take them in before they are past.
Congrats! Pat for #1 herea good cheer!Hank
SAvor those fleeting moments!! Wise words, poet! :)
So very nice, Hank. It reminds me of the year I moved to Texas. It was in March and in Washington, D.C, the cherry trees were blossoming like I had never seen before or after. There are not a lot of Cherry trees in New Hampshire where I moved from and NONE in our part of Texas...
some fleeting moments can last a life time. beautiful Hank
You are a classic poet :-)
Your poem reminded me of the song 'Cherry Pink and Apple Blossom White' ~~ from eons ago, kind of a mambo thing we used to swing and sway to!!!!
Good things may not be permanent, but neither are bad things. All is transitory...Cooling Raindrops
Each haiku is a gem. Beautiful words.
The first one is outstanding and so true.
Oh, Hank, it's so true. Some of the most beautiful things in nature (cocoons to budding trees to full-blown blossoms that will soon fade) are transitory. We must learn to stop and appreciate them, not simply walk by and take these miracles for granted.I mean, I brake for toads! Amy
I love blossoms, Hank. These are particularly lovely, and you have written words to match. A very nice write, my friend!K
smiles. i have a tree full of them out front...love when the wind picks up a bunch and for a moment you can see them swirl in it before the cherry blossom rain begins to fall...
lovely image and a lovely tribute to spring

It is so sad that cherry blossom is so fleeting but how wonderful it is while it lasts.
Awesome haiku Hank. Long time no see.
I love this haiku.. Perfect!
