playful bunnies, at least they’re
a nice shade of green
their desire is
similar to ours, you see,
the warmth of the sun
safety in numbers
invading where blooms should be
their defense is strong

That is so cute and a good Haiku 🙂 hugs and love
Thanks, Autumn, hope you have a great day! Hugs and love back to you! 🙂
Sounds like Japanese knotweed. I spent a summer battling that determined foe.
Looking out my kitchen window, there are just too many. It’s almost that time again! 🙂 By the way, your book arrived and I’m enjoying it, Joe! Congrats, again, and I love the cover and title!
Thanks again and welcome. It is remarkable what you can do with PowerPoint! 🙂
I’m not experienced in power point, but am still perusing the many options! It is my goal for this year, just not sure when! 🙂
Nice work. All ready for spring.
Thanks, Kim, it’s almost time to start pulling, which is not my forte! 🙂
What a fun haiku Lauren, I enjoyed it! 🙂 I haven’t been thinking about gardens because we are into the single digits here, very cold…Brr! Hugs and Love 🙂
Thanks, Gabby, it’s been cold here, but not like your winter! When I look out my kitchen window, I see a meadow of beautiful green weeds! Ugh! It’s almost that time! 🙂 Love and blessings for you today! 🙂
I love his Lauren! I am fascinated by haiku and learning more all the time.
This one gave me a big smile! 🙂 xxx
Thanks, Christine, I was inspired after looking out my kitchen window yesterday! It’s almost time to start pulling and that’s not my top choice on things to do! But, once I get started, I’m on a roll! 🙂 Hugs to you! xoxo
These make me really want Spring to come! 🙂
Beautiful haikus Lauren
Thanks, Scott, and spring will be a nice change, although these weeds aren’t welcomed, but seem to visit each year! Looking out the kitchen window, they’re in full view, but soon enough, there will be beautiful blooms again! 🙂
I to looked out my kitchen window, Lauren. Dense fog cloaked the garden and obliterated the sun. Four days without sun. In desperation I started raking about the garden looking for the first sign of spring flowers. Nothing. Perhaps tomorrow.
Well, we’ve had a lot of sun, but today it’s raining..maybe over the weekend, I’ll attempt to do some weed pulling! I hope you find some blooms, too, Virginia! It’s always nice to see you here and I’ll be over your way soon! Hugs!
Yes, the weeds are coming, we actually did some weeding last Sat. to get a head start. Very clever, seester!
Thanks, Debbie, and you’re ahead of me. It’s raining today, but maybe over the weekend, I’ll dive in! 🙂 xo
So glad to have your light back shining into my world! Very nicely done Lauren!
Awww…thanks, Wendell! You made my day and it’s good to be back and to be able to focus on something fun, rather than uncertainties in the future.
A very interesting piece. Splendid job and thank you for sharing.
Thank you so much and I appreciate your visit, too! 🙂
Precision at its’ best in this poem! Superb contrast and flow is incredibly smooth. Way to go gal, your writings are a thrill — as always! And, well, I like the pic of you and hubby (above on main page of your blog!), may God continue His blessings to you and sire ! xxoxoox
Oh, you are just too kind, Shaheen! Thank you for all of your lovely words…looking forward to spring, but the weeds have got to go! 🙂 And thank you regarding our photo (24 years ago). Oh to be young again! 🙂 I send you much love and many hugs, too, my friend! xoxo
very lovely ku’s, Lauren. Spring is around the bend 🙂

Thanks, again, my lovely friend! Yes, the beautiful blooms will be here soon, but the weeds are daunting! 🙂 Much love to you today! xoxo
