Fickle forsythia .... I love it! Yes it does seem as though plants lose their direction in the early days of Spring. But, as Jacob says, with the coming of summer they glow in their true glory! Our garden is just waking up, and it is wonderful to see. Your Haiku is very good, especially as it has universal undertones, and can be applied to many other things.

i would say this past April is the fickle one Chris! we had two nights of hard frost that snapped the leaves of our more delicate trees and bushes ... i love the way forsythia can splay its slim, elegant limps ... so clearly meant to herald the sunshine of summer .. all gold and yellow in profusion ... one can loose direction in many ways eh!? ;) your haiku sends me lost in a daydream of bliss ... but thats just me i guess :) peace and love

A powerful senryu.
So much lovely imagery packed into so few words.
Practically, a movie's opening scene.

As long as it isn't blubbery, nothing worse than blubbery shrubbery! You are a burst of a fresh air breeze :) I could never do these haiku thingy's I tend to lose direction too... but this was a very pretty one

Hello Chris!
Your choice of words is so beautiful and enthrals a word-lover! Stunning images of the flower going wayward in the April breeze. Your words have a deeper undertone for me though. I just loved this senryu 💕
