“Desire for spring not very logical maybe this early in 2016, because we are still in the middle of winter (on the Northern Hemisphere), but on the other hand I can fully understand this “desire for spring”. I am longing for spring already, after the dark period of the year I am anxious to see how nature will come alive again. I love winter, but the last decades we haven’t had really winter in my country all as a result of the global warming I think. Right at this moment it’s however close to zero degrees Celsius outside … and the weather forecast talks about snow. I hope we will get a little winter here in The Netherlands …

Jane gives a few examples of haiku for “desire for spring” I have chosen two of them. Both are giving words to desire for spring:

eaves dripping
the candle flame


winter days
a heart runs without panting
to the beach

after the darkness
I am longing for the young leaves
and cherry blossoms 


the blooming cherries
watching them in the moonlight
it’s magical

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.
