Cherry Trees

amazing cherry trees
blossoms burst in spring
to animate the bees
inspire a thousand poets
intoxicate the breeze
where would this old world be
without those cherry trees

      1. I got so enthused about haiku that I even started a blog just for that, several years ago. The ancient haiku writers used different symbolisms, and this is one of them. The oft-used scarecrow represents an old person, esp weary old man. Knowing that, this verse (mine) makes more sense:
        more snowflakes settle
        on the scarecrow’s head
        the old year passes
