Lilac Haiku by Ken Chawkin

As I was about to get into my car after visiting Sali at Parkview Care Center, I noticed a sweet aroma. Walking on the lawn towards the willow tree I looked around and noticed lilac bushes in full bloom. Their wonderful perfume inspired this haiku.


Lilacs are lovely
Their perfume sweetens the air
Harbingers of Spring
