Spring blues

Here is another example of sijo.
I'll be uploading some more from time to time.

I glimpsed the color of spring
as you leizurely sauntered in

the balmy breath of air
drove the winter chill and pall away

but you did not tarry long
and soon vanished out of my dream.

In my book, Rustle of bamboo leaves,
but originally published in World Haiku Review,
Vol. 1, Issue 2, August 2001.
