first wildflowers – – haiku

first wildflowers

in scattered clusters

buttons of light


May 8, 2019


Aside: I wrote this haiku after finding dandelions, the first wildflowers I’ve seen this spring. After writing, I discovered in Wikipedia that dandelions have “a fossil record that goes back to glacial and interglacial times in Europe”.

  1. Delightful haiku of these ‘buttons of light’. A wild flower I’ve loved since young, even making up a name for them! Thank you for the fossil history snippet ..fascinating. Happy Weekend, Janice and hope many more wild flowers appear now as we head into middle of May! 😀🌺
