Thanks to Rachel Green for this week's prompt, flowering.




dusk blends moon and sun
brushes the low horizon
magenta flowers

I love it! The idea of dusk brushing against the horizon is wonderful. I imagine the flowers magically appearing after this contact. Great stuff. Thanks.

This is just lovely.

Quiet Paths said...

This is amazing in its simplicity and it's definition. Both words and image blend so well together. It made me smile immediately.

Simply beautiful! I love this time of day, when the light changes, and you hear the birds saying good night. Fantastic imagery with "magenta flowers"

Hi Sue, Thanks for "finding" me. Truth is, I've been too busy to worry much about the Poet Laureate of the Blogosphere contest. I lost last year, too. But it's a great way to "meet" a few new poets. I'll bookmark you, also.

Oh, I always come up as deadmule on Blogger. I'm Poetry Editor there and that's what my gmail account says.

Best, Helen Losse

What a great image, I can just see the sky as a giant flower.

How mystical! I loved "brushes the low horizon", much like a sweeping, soft embrace.

Very evocative words.

Tumblewords, how nice to find other poets! A sweet haiku. The one below is powerful. I like your description of yourself and how your brain took a right turn. I personally love Idaho and plan on posting some poems and paintings about it on my blog eventually. I lived there for 2 blessed years but have never been able to return. The memory stays in my heart like a lover and I long for it. Thanks for visiting my blog!

It's certainly not easy to write a haiku. I find it hard writing a good and meaningful one in 3 short lines. But you do it well!

paisley said...

Beloved Dreamer said...

You make it look easy.

I apologize for my late visit … but I’ve devoted today to OSI before all else. I’m glad I didn’t miss this post. Your words match the image magnificently … and both dance in my imagination!
Hugs and blessings,
