Haiku - (Wild)flowers

One Deep Breath gave us a wonderful prompt today, perfect for Haiku, with enough leeway to experiment or just write from the heart or the eye. Make sure you click the link and follow it to the wonderful poets who participate each week. You will find a Haiku among them that will speak to you. I'm on my way to read with you. (Even if you are not a poetry lover, many of us post beautiful photos with our Haiku. My photos are not accessible for a while, but theirs are.)


Hibiscus tucked right
eyes instinctively brighten
young woman on prowl


Cross country move finds
seagulls and pink hibiscus
memories from home


Daisies reach skyward
on barren stretch of highway
afternoon delight



To those very few who stumble on this for stealing content purposes (not the rest of you!):
Oh yes, they will know you copied these -- for they are only formed with little sustenance, so don't. It doesn't become you and it is not right.

Oh, the first one is quite bold! And I am particualrly fond of daisies so the last one appeals to me as well. What wonderful haikus today!

Crafty Green Poet said...

very vivid! Though I love hibiscus, I think the daisies speak to me more here, I love their simplicity and their tenacity.

Shelley said...

Wow, three nice ones, each strong in its own way...

I especially liked the idea of memories being sparked after a move...

thank thee.

The second one reminds me that coming here, I always see seagulls, where I didn't back home. But the last one is my favorite.

I like the second and third the best, although all three are great. The last line in #3 made me think of so many funny movies with that "afternoon delight" song like anchorman and I started to laugh.

It's interesting how until we moved to FL, I'd never seen a hibiscus. Now, bold red ones grow outside my door.

Regina Clare Jane, Crafty Green Poet, Shelley,Plain Foolish, Clockwork Chris,Brian, the Heartful Blogger - I am glad you all were able to relate to one of the flowers in these. Thank you for taking the time to comment on them.

Clare said...

I really like all 3 of these! The first one gave me a giggle. And the last 2 have such lovely images of birds and flowers and really nice emotional tones.

Patois said...

It is always a delight to happen upon the flowers when driving long stretches at a time. I enjoyed the three, but really related to the third.
