Cherry Blossom Haikus 2014

This past weekend brought to a close the three-week National Cherry Blossom Festival in DC. When the trees reached peak bloom last Thursday, we asked readers to send their best haikus about the cherry blossoms in DC. Here are our favorites.

the beaver vandals
hide in the day, but at night
they eat your blossoms

— Heydaisy from DC

Days, at last, longer.
Pink snow falls and starts dancing
along DC streets.

— Laura from Kiev, Ukraine

As blossoms emerge,
Tourists swarm the city streets.
Blooming idiots.

— Jim from Lanham, Md.

The gifts from Japan,
Cherry trees pique appetites.
Sushi, wasabi.

— Jim from Lanham, Md.

A brief Spring rises
March into April’s Pink bliss
Time to fornicate

— Badge from Taipei, Taiwan
