Spring

HAIKU FOR SPRING

new green shoots-
the afternoon sun
warming my muse

more rain
ducks explore a new pond
of connecting puddles

church graveyard-
wild violets growing
between stones

a dandelion
growing between bricks-
the quiet dusk

Très belle série de haïkus. J'aime beaucoup.

church graveyard -
wild violets growing
between stones

cimetière proche de l'église -
des violettes sauvages poussent
entre les pierres

Is il a good translation ?

Adelaide said...

Thank you Marcel. My French is not very good, but I think it is a good translation. Merci.
