Spring Palette

This tanka pulled me from a dream this morning:

green bud

Timid green buds bask
in momentary glory
not to be outdone
by color-flaunting fanfare
of resplendent flowering trees

 

And this haiku followed the tanka into my waking world…

dogwood

Pear tree blossoms prove

alabaster’s rightful place

on the spring palette
