Poems for Flowers

Poems from over the years

how does it stay
so regal on this day?
Queen Anne’s Lace

wearing
my old sweater
worn thin
Queen Anne’s Lace
along country roads

road work leads
to another way home
wildflowers

loved for years
and now I know your name
blue chicory

Daily Haiku: May 27, 2017

each flower
a star for a time
daylilies

clouds and yet
enough light
to fill a jam jar
with the last
of the carnations

growing older
goldenrod and roses
refreshed by rain

Blessings,
Ellen Grace Olinger

Garden Haiku

wind uplifting
the branches of trees
sunrise

morning garden
shadows of lilacs
on the chair

reading memoirs
and then the view
outside today

reading poetry
in the garden
summer school

timeless seasons
I don’t know how old
these plants are

each flower
a star for a time
daylilies

treetops
in golden light
sunset

Creative Notes and Vintage Art

Poets and artists create with haiku in so many ways. A few of many posts I looked at today:

city lights‘ by Stella Pierides, who creates “haikufeltings.”

Haiku Exhibit Coming Soon! by Charlotte Digregorio

And as you know I also enjoy the vintage images and education notes at Reusable Art. The images may inspire new work. There are many categories.
