Facing a new week
waiting for spring, I feel her
tension beneath me.
Love it, beautiful thoughts.
subtle words yet effective ~
we are on holiday here ~
Wonderful haiku with a lovely twist! Nicely done : ))
I’ve come back to this poem to try to figure out what makes it intriguing. I think it’s the ambiguity of “her” — if she’s the season, Spring, then the tension of the poem is between facing forward, expectantly, and the jolting realization that the longed-for is already here, having entered unexpected, from the ground, bounding with pent-up energy. (I heard there were snowdrops already in Toronto. Which never happens in February!) If “her”, on the other hand, is a person, then the poem is about a relationship with a degree of irritation/distraction on both parts. The extra fun for me as a reader is the tension between those two possibilities and wondering whether it was intended.
