With bark like snakeskin
The maple waits wet-footed –
Soon the duck egg cracks

Yay! I was bumbling around the marshes recently and decided if the trees could talk, that’s what they would be complaining about…
On top of your game – I like this a lot!
Thank you O sometime bawdy bard. I hope the haiku are improving just a tad…
Go raibh maith agat 🙂
That second line… sublime, Rachael. I love how you’ve also effectively incorporated some alliteration into this haiku.
Ha! Thank you, Miranda. I didn’t spot what I’d done.
Spring is busting out all over here, so there’s a mass of inspiration!
