Reinvented spring

Reinvented spring

3 January 2015

 

Spectacles, new eyes

Look within their frame’s focus

Winter’s snow turns crisp

 

Next doors a bird chirps

A leafy tree in desert

Reinvented spring

 

 

Rain’s pitter patter

Upon the meadows flowers

Snow preserved by walls

 

Beach sands extended

Slight rivers joining the sea

Summer kissed winter

 

 

Images from my camera for the flowers (all from my garden) and from luxuo.com, worldoftravel.com, ink361.com, gadling.com for the Dubai sightseeing points landscapes

I wrote this poem in a series of Haiku bordering on Senryu because it struck me how much it is typical of this country in its winter to know of three seasons within the same time; mainly winter, spring and summer together but during some days winter, spring and autumn bizarrely depending on where you are going. The winter symbol is of course man-made with the construction of ski Dubai in Mall of the Emirates where you can go skiing regardless of the temperature outside. Winter here is the equivalent of spring in Europe and when it is not raining the weather is fantastic, flowers are blooming and birds are chirping everywhere.
