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,

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.”
