Spring haiku poems are a fun way to shed the winter doldrums and cast your vision toward spring dreaming. Traditionally, haiku poetry was about nature.

About Haiku Poetry

Modern haiku can be about any topic under the sun.  However, haiku, originating in Japan, was about capturing the essence of nature’s wonder in simple three line haiku poems, and nature is still the most popular subject matter for haikus*. In fact, it’s often the experience of awe at nature’s magnificence that inspires us to find those few words that might describe that wonder.

It could be said that haiku poetry is about describing the indescribable… the hidden essence felt as presence, or the hidden essence behind it all. Haiku is equally about stating the obvious as it is giving meaning to the intangible.

*Haiku is both singular and plural, so it’s not technically correct to say haikus, though it is a common occurrence in English.

Spring Haiku

Awakening Haiku

WINTER AWAKENING

Cave dweller peeks out
Dawn calls behind sheltered clouds
Hibernate no more

Haiku by Beth Murphyhaiku & tanka poet

Beth’s art description of this hibernation haiku is interesting and actually quite relatable!

Hibernation for Winter or Spring:
“This actually looks like a spring Haiku relating to hibernating animals… however, it’s not what it seems. For me the ‘writing hibernation’ is the opposite – wishing to spend outside time and less ‘inside my creative mind’ during the warmer months. Now, [this was written in November] we are more bound to be inside, [so] the creative inner hibernation for me has ended. I have a clearer mind when I am not competing with all the fond outside experiences of being a summer girl. PS feeling unstuck!”

Shaking off winter’s slumber
