Haiku Friday: Hopes of Spring

I know that spring is coming.  I like winter, of course; if I didn't, why would I live in Minnesota?  Still, it is the change of seasons that is thrilling.  I love the first snow, I love the first flower, I love that first hot day, and I love the magic of early September, when you need a sweater for the first time in months.

Traditionally, haiku is about nature themes. I don't go there often, but lets do it this week.  Write about the hopes for spring, or a glimpse of it...

I will go first:

The barbecue grill
Huddles beneath the deep snows,
It yearns to breath fire.

Now it is your turn!  Use the 5 syllable/7 syllable/5 syllable formula, and have some fun!

Bound but not stilled,
New life waits for the old surge.
Like a barbecue.
Saturday was spring.
Sunday, snow, etcetera.
Welcome to Texas.
Early peach trees bloom,
But snow flies mercilessly,
No peaches this year.
Purple hyacinth
Inhale Easter memory
Spring c'est arrivé.

Sunshine melts the snow
But baseball wakes the spirit
Spring training is here!
Snow blankets the yard
A green tip breaks the ice crust
The first Snowdrop; spring
hallelujah Gavin!
