Carpe Diem #129, Forsythia

Dear haijin, visitors and travelers,

I am so glad to see how all your haiku are becoming stronger and more beautiful ... really it is a joy to read your posts every day. I hope that you will continuing to share your haiku with Carpe Diem. It is my joy to be your host for this daily haiku meme.
Sometimes a prompt brings memories up to other haiku I have written. And so does our prompt for today 'Forsythia'. I remember that I have used Forsythia in my post on Early Blossom (prompt 109):

through the open window
riding along with the cold winter wind
the scent of Forsythia

Forsythia is for sure an early blossoming bush, here in my country the Forsythia is starting to become yellowish and greenish. So ... I think Spring is heading ...

announcer of Spring
in soft yellowish and greenish colors
Forsythia blooming

Isn't it wonderful ... after the cold winter ... the warm Spring colors bringing new life to the world.

This prompt will stay on 'till February 25th 11.59 AM (CET) and I will post our new episode of Carpe Diem later on today. That will be 'full Snow Moon', it's about the Full Moon of February. So have fun with this prompt and share your haiku with us all.



  1. I forgot about the scent! Actually I don't know if the scent is nice, but your haiku is all the nicer for mentioning the scent...still snow here, flower aromas long forgotten..

  2. Long time here until forsythia. But your wonderful haiku induce a yearning inside :-)

  3. Thanks for hosting and doing a wonderful job ~ wish MA was closer to Spring ~ ah, each day we are getting there ~ lovely haiku ~ your ending is similar go mine ~
