Celebrate Poetry-4/10: FLOWERS

The theme for Day 10′s celebrating National Poetry Month is “Flowers.” Click HERE for details of this haiku celebration of throughout the month of April.

My haiku on flowers is another excerpt from Life: Haiku by Haiku. I wrote it one spring in Arkansas as I drove to the farm. This scattering of lace on the hills is one of the things I miss most about living in Arkansas.

Dogwood flowers bloom
delicate lace scattered like
whispers of spring

    Rose started the curse
    A beast heart and soul I am
    Love to break the curse

  3. Another lovely haiku from you, Jan.

    Determined to grow
    Glorious colors bless our lives
    Flowers, love’s language

  4. Nora says:

    From the ground they spring
    Unknowingly into a
    World that won’t notice.

    at the royal feast
    dancing girls swirl till dawn
    passion flowers bloom

  6. Azim Khan says:

    blooming jasmine-
    nocturnal paradise
    rani meets the raja

    after the park fire,
    charred pine needles, blackened twigs–
    and wild violets

    pedaled marvels fade
    wilt as all marvels will do
    again, the sun rises
