Spring Vespers – A Haiku

Persephone smiles
and the earth blooms, its vespers,
spring’s fragrant, first breath.


For Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge, Prompt words: worship (vespers) and goddess (Persephone).


Persephone – Digital Art By Kat Myrman ©2017

Deep beneath the warming loam,
sleepy synapses scintillate,
amber, resin streams resuscitate
hosts of blushing buds in wait
on barren limbs at heaven’s gate
while sad Demeter roams.

Persephone, please don’t be late
escape your gloomy catacomb,
reclaim your radiant, verdant state…
come home.
