Haiku Flower Tag
« on: June 12, 2011, 11:29 PM »
How about a haiku tag with a flower?
Post traditional 5-7-5 or fewer than 17 syllables.
Here goes:


lavender orchids
swaying in the morning breeze
butterflies' delight
"and at my back I always hear time's wingéd chariot hurrying near..."
                                                                                           -Andrew Marvel

clusters of heady scent
breathing jasmine in the air
late evening walk
"and at my back I always hear time's wingéd chariot hurrying near..."

moonflowers shine
competing with the blue moon
no contest
"and at my back I always hear time's wingéd chariot hurrying near..."

only lack of space

vast greenery
miles of sunflowers
nodding towards the sun

affirm the power
of petals left to the wind
they open again
sometimes you just have to close everyone out and slice the lime

four o'clock magic

sometimes you just have to close everyone out and slice the lime
