Kobushi (Kobushi magnolia)

Today, it was fine and warm.
I went to a woods near my house, and took these photos.
Kobushi is a tree which bloom in early spring.
So it is a word of spring in haiku poetry.
Those trees in the first photo are very tall.
"kobushi" literally means fist in English.
Because the fruit of the tree looks like a fist.

Drawing up its fists in the naked sky
nature is demonstrating against winter
"We want sun" seem to shout the kobushi.

Then comes the spring..

Beautiful blossoms of spring.Make my spirit sing.The eternal song of joy.Make hopeful, my winter heart. ( Does it sound like a haiku?)
