Haiku Photos – 2

Forsythia petals on old leaves, and the light – May 2015

This is one of my first haiku photos – seeing new beauty in the yard.

Wildflowers by the driveway – May 2015

Lake Michigan – June 2015

I enjoy creating new arrangements as flower bouquets fade.

Many of my photos and posts were inspired by The Daily Post prompts and challenges. You can view The Daily Post Photo Challenges Archive.

The Daily Post editors are excellent: “All the tools you need to jump-start a new blog, or to revive an existing one.”

Easter lily – April 2017

strength for the iris

strength for the iris
while waiting to bloom
daylily

Rejoice with them that do rejoice,
and weep with them that weep.

Romans 12: 15 (KJV)

My original post may be read here – it connects to a past one-word prompt series at WordPress.com. This was my post for “Envy.” Thought I’d focus on empathy, caring, and support.

I enjoy the research for images I may reprint. These are from wpclipart.

Creative Notes

Please see WELCOME TO TINYWORDS 19.1 for the introduction to the new issue by Editors Kathe L. Palka and Peter Newton.

I enjoyed reading Carole MacRury’s winning poem for the recent prompt, and my poem, “Wisconsin winter,” is also featured.

Thank you,

more colors of blue

more colors of blue
in Lake Michigan today
than I can name
the wonder of always learning
dreaming new dreams

last Sunday in June
knitting with yarn
the color of blueberries

mid-August
