One Single Impression--prompt 'homecoming'

Haven't tormented anyone with my 'poetry' for a bit, so with little Sion playing with his binky and eyeing me and the cat, I'd thought I'd give it a go with a haiku.



Mated for life
first bud of spring
birds return.

And if I haven't said it yet, thank you to everyone for your words of encouragement. Thanks!

I really like the bare-essentials minimalism of this, with none of the "poetics" lost.

Nature has its' own homecomings.
Great haiku.

Hi Lenore, I have had other lives, guess I was mated for each?
(Please forgive me, I could not help myself there, I do know what is right. Sometimes there is no choice, it takes two to make a marriage.)
Thank you for peeking in and leaving the tale of the bumper sticker.
