first morning of spring
one by one flowers open
dewdrops turn to mist

Written for Carpe Diem #1183 first day of spring (haruno saisho no hi)

This month at Carpe Diem the challenge is to create haiku in the traditional style. This means a 5-7-5 syllable count, use of a kigo (season word), interchangeable first and third lines, etc.
