Haiku to you Thursday: “Love is…”

Purple Iris after a rain.

 

Love is a flower. /

Often too short a time /

but always a wonder.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Geometry of love”

The struggle.

The struggle.

We struggle to love. /

Within its geometry /

Blooms the flower of us.

Photo finish Friday: “Reward”

Each flower is its own reward, especially to the inchworm making its way to the petals.

Haiku to you Thursday: “Infinite”

Infinite the rooms, /

yet empty the mansion – /

Save one with flowers.

Photo finish Friday: “Flower plea”

"Oh, please, don't pick me."

“Oh, please, don’t pick me.”

Flower plea

Oh, please, oh, please, don’t pick me.
There’s only a short life within me.
Leave me so others can see me.
Let me be so I can be me.

Come by as often as you like,
Be it in a car, on foot, or a trike.
I’ll be here for all to delight.
To pick me would leave only a blight.

I’m here for only a short while.
Let my bloom help others to smile.
Do not give in to temptation or denial
And leave nothing but a joy defiled.

Oh, please, oh, please, don’t pick me.
There’s only a short life within me.
Leave me so others can see me.
Let me be so I can be me.

–photo and poem by David E. Booker
