Haiku Heights April Challenge, day 1 "eager"

Well ... finally the Haiku Heights April Challenge has started. A new challenge to write haiku every day on a given prompt. Today's prompt is EAGER . English is, as you maybe know (and sometimes can read), not my maiden language. So I am not so familiar with Eager. I have search the internet and found a few synonyms of eager e.g. ambitious, desirous and longing. Those are words I can understand so I will try to write a few haiku with those words and maybe some other synonyms.

Well ... let's do this!!!

yearning for spring
the frost makes nature suffer -
snowdrops are blooming

snowdrops are blooming
they are longing for spring
after the dark winter

after the dark winter
restless cherry blossom buds
starting to bloom

starting to bloom
the old apple tree garden
yearning for spring

See you tomorrow, for another day in the Haiku Heights April challenge.

"the old apple tree garden" is so evocative to me, and a nice coda to this super haiku set.

Congratulations - I know how difficult it is to write poetry in a language which is not your mother tongue. You have certainly
created something beautiful with this chain of real haiku. And you have the meaning of 'eager' spot on.
