Hi Meri~ The entire cycle of life expressed in your haiku and photo. Amazing how you could so succinctly compress this concept in the same way the new soil is formed...

my first daffodils have lifted their bright faces.
love your photograph and the inherent beauty in nature...where we accept the life cycle as beauty.
may spring fill you in the way you long to be filled.

My pure white snow drop stands alone amid last year's decay, she is waiting patiently knowing sun's warm rays will eventually bring her more beautiful petals, a riot of colourful companions!

The changing colors of the cyclical seasons are warm and inviting. They make us less fearful of decay, having the understanding that it is a bittersweet necessity for new growth to take place. Beautiful image, Meri. It is like a Spring bouquet of leaves.
