Haiku Blossoms


One Single Impression says: Thanks to Lissa at Just Writing Words for this week's prompt of faces. Thanks also for sharing your poem and for providing the artwork.





yolks in the middle
white pull-away leaves forecast
~~~loves me, loves me not



hillside dance
bear grass and lupine
face to face

I love the Daisy haiku.

I confess - I always cheated to make sure I always got 'he loves me', but he didn't love me enough.

Nicely done, Sue!

Roswila said...

These are delightful, Sue. I particularly enjoyed the second. I can just see it!

Quiet Paths said...

I just truly like all of these. That last one I can really relate to! thanks for the tiny portraits.

Pam said...

I wonder what dance the Bear Grass does with the lupine-- something slow or something quick. Very nice haikus.

I like both of your poems - very creative! Lovely images to come away with - I have seen the grasses and flowers dancing, too.

hello... that a daisy could bring us such joy...i can imagine each pluck the petal sez.. ouch, ouch, ouch.. or.. maybe, maybe not...

I like the poem about the daisy. It has its own little yolk colored face, doesn't it! And you've pulled of its bonnet! Did you discover who loves you? I can see the lupine and bear grass waltzing too! May I join in?

Raven said...

The second is my favorite, I think, but I do like the idea of the daisy's face being a yolk. Your haiku are lovely delicate blossoms.

gardenpath said...

They are both good, but that second one really hits me.

Both are wonderful! My favorite is the daisy, my mothers favorite flower. I love how you used the prompt here. Very creative!

I was struck by your self-portrait drawing icon - lovely. Like this poem and photograph.
