Chelsea Spring Walk: Haiku and Photos

Black wrought-iron gates
In front of aging brownstones
Keep blooms behind bars.

Brave tulips, upright,
Marching in place to a war
They can never win.
Faded mauve tulips,
With their back-curling petals,
Open yellow hearts.

Magneta redbud,
Fluffy pink crqab apple skirts,
Dance in the spring breeze.

Spring sun and blossoms.
Rapidly thumbing his phone
He blindly passes.
The cracked, dying tree,
Its throat choked by ivy vines,
Still tries to sprout leaves.

In the soft spring wind
The creamy petals eddy
Across my black shoes.
