Haiku and Bible Verse

lily of the valley
fragrance of forgiveness
memories of love

I will praise thee, O Lord, with my whole heart;
I will show forth all thy marvelous works.

Psalm 9:1 (KJV)

My mother liked this flower and fragrance.

Haiku Photos

As I read and view my archives for my 1,000 Posts Review, I remember favorite photos. When I began taking some photos again, I realized that poetry helps me see the photos. I would look around the yard, or create a bouquet, and see the photos already there – waiting for someone with a camera. I call them Haiku Photos.

And the images can be expressed in many ways, many art forms. A simple note of encouragement is art too, for example.

New hosta growing by the birch tree – May 2015

Shadows of forsythia on the cedar wood garage – June 2015

Roses from the yard – July 2015

where once
I mourned
irises

Photo is from the yard in July 2015.

I love how the daylilies grow, bloom, and accept change – to begin again the next year. This photo is from August 2015.

The seasons change, and I love observing nature. This photo is from October 1, 2015. The light through the days and years is a constant source of inspiration.
