Forsythia

Buds of bright yellow
Herald the ever brightening
Spring sun in the sky

Xx

Evocative scent
Brighter even than itself
Sign that spring's coming

Xx

Oriental bush
Brightens dull European
Early spring gardens

Xxxxx

Really? Is the forsythia from Asia? I never knew that. Thanks for enlightening me!

I didn't knew that Forsythia is from Asia. Thanks for sharing this wonderfully composed haiku.

Forsythias are from Asia, like most of our garden bloom.
