NaPoWriMo: Tuesday's haiku

Tuesday's prompt was to write a haiku or to write about a haiku.

syllables confound
images lost in counting
cherry blossoms fall

wild japonica
blooms deep red by the roadside
as in other years

The first red tulips
open to rain and in shade
bright white trillium

duck under the bough
that crosses the walk, heavy
with petals and rain

let go the number
feel each poem fill you like breath
spring will not linger
