Day 27 ~ 31 Haiku in Search of a Voice ~
“Come, follow us,” they whisper
In golden voices.
The Daffodil is by far one of my favorite flowers. One of the first little peeks of Spring, the word Daffodil means new-comer and the Daffodil is said to symbolize chivalry and great reward. But mostly I love the Daffodil’s bright yellow color and sunburst design with its trumpet-like call to Spring! This little bunch of gems is growing in our back yard, sneaking under the fence into our neighbor’s yard, child-like, carefree & happy, almost like running to play hide-and-seek. I saw a Haiku in Search of a Voice! Daffodils always make my heart sing and remind me of one of my favorite poems – I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud – by 19th century English poet William Wordsworth, a poem I loved to teach. The poem’s last 2 lines say: And then my heart with pleasure fills,/And dances with the daffodils. Yes, Daffodils are great rewards and gifts of Spring!
