Haiku Heights April Challenge, day 30 "zest"

We have come at the end of our April Challenge. Today day 30, the last day. I am glad to have participated in this Haiku Heights April Challenge and I loved to be a part of it.
I have read wonderful haiku during this month and really ... it was a challenge. Thank you all for participating and for your nice contributions to it. 

Today the prompt is zest I didn't know the meaning of it so (again) I had to do some research on it. I ran into the following meaning and synonyms:
the basic meaning of it is enthusiasm and I have found a few synonyms for it. For example: sparkle, yearning, devotion, energy and liveliness. This will not be an easy one, but I have to do it to enclose this April Challenge of Haiku Heights. Thank you Leo for giving me (us) the opportunity to be part of it.

with enthusiasm

I know what you mean about feeling sad. When good things come to an end, there is an emptiness...
