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

Bleeding Hearts: Photo and Poems

Poems From Oostburg, Wisconsin

This is another beautiful photo by Karl from yesterday.

Poems from my archives, inspired by bleeding hearts:

old photos
on my desk —
bleeding hearts in bloom

Published first inTime Of Singing(1994). Also reprinted with the poems selected for myPoet Profileat The Haiku Foundation.

AUTUMN GRACE

leaves of bleeding hearts
now gold
so do broken hearts mend
so does grief heal
Autumn grace

Published by Bell’s Letters Poet, SMILE, and WestWard Quarterly.

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.
