There is no Easter Ghost thinks Scrooge only being Nice at Christmas time Instant love vending Jamming my arrow Eros Please take aim again Watching the paint dry Director’s Cut edition Better than cricket All roads lead to Rome Except the A6 Bi-pass Going round Stockport Roses greet the snow Hoping to see Santa Claus Meeting only Death Arthur Chappell

Haikus are not my forte but I appreciate them as they are succinct with a message - yours are humorous too - siva

I noticed one of my rose bushes was blooming a couple of days ago, so foreign in Canada in December and I didn't venture out to get a photo but I saw it with my own eyes...

I spoke with a friend a few days ago who found roses blooming in the unusually mild weather in his garden - that inspired the verse

@arthurchappel always enjoy your haikus. No roses blooming here in Latvia but due to our unusually warm weather we have had bushes coming out with buds.
