52 Cleveland Haiku (11)

The first sign of spring,
bright color against the snow:
orange barrels blossom.

Just noticed that Don Iannone has also been posting a series of haiku over at his blog-- for example, check out "impermanence"

Love it! I always look for the crocuses, but the barrels are the real early bloomers,

daffodils are out, on the south-facing hillside, anyway... I'm mulling over a haiku, but daffodils may have been done so many times it's not fresh.
