Rose Garden Haiku

sensuous beauty

blushing beneath the sun’s tongue

pink folds unfurling

 

white linens windblown

a dancer’s petals whirling

in joyous spirit

 

spring rain surrenders

 May’s roses lift fair faces

to sunlight’s warm breath

 

vintage tapestry

roses stitched on wine and jade

grandmother’s bouquet

 

harlequin tumblers

decked in frippery and frills

perform for the sun

 

fuzzy chubby bee

revel in your golden wreath

sated with summer

 

Thank you for visiting my garden. ❤

I hope you’re doing well.

    Your garden is glorious, Diana! Your flowers are simply stunningly beautiful – no wonder the bumblebees have fun collecting nectar, I’d do to if that were my preferred diet! 😁 And your lovely haikus are the cherry on top! ❤

    So beautiful, Diana. The flowers are exquisite. “Sensuous….blushing…petals whirling…sated with summer”. Your words have transported me to your garden and to your soul.

    An aside Diana, A huge hug since I realize life is extra challenging for you right now. xoxo

    Diana, a joy to visit your garden and your roses are spectacular… such great photos to accompany your haikus. I love how they all seem to capture the spirit and characteristics of each rose, a celebration of light for us all … a treat of a post! 🌹

    Hoping your father is soon much better … take care, hugs xx ❤️

    • Thanks, Annika. It was fun trying to make each haiku unique to the photo. 🙂 I had to do something light and peaceful with all the troubles going on in the world. My dad will be fine, it’s just a matter of working through all the logistics and follow up appointments. My mom will be up soon and the day begins. It’s lovely to see you and I hope all is going well with you and yours. ❤ Be well, my friend.

        I know how you feel, which is why I’ve done a couple of flower posts hoping my readers won’t get bored. 🙂 You actually inspired me to look up some old haiku and maybe write some new, so thank you. And slugs? Just lovely LOL 🥰

  12. Your garden is a perfect place to be away from all the craziness, Diana! I can see cheerful petals dancing. The one above the bumble bee is yet to be my favorite color. Oh, boy, that bee is busy! Less than four months before the election 2020! Stay in your garden for a fragrant weekend, my friend! 🙂

  18. Thank you for sharing your colorful sensuous and sensational garden with us here. I can literally SMELL the flowers – your photos are that real. And the touch is velvety and soft. The words help with that. My favorite word now? FRIPPERY. Oh, how we all can use more frippery in our lives.

    • Not all of my roses are fragrant, Pam, but when they are, I’m right beside that bee with my nose in the petals! As always the outdoors brings me tons of peace during this crazy time. Wishing you a lovely Friday and weekend, my friend. Be well. ❤

  24. Exquisite! I particularly loved “frippery and frills” – that just tickled me!
    Meanwhile, down here, it’s starting to look grim.
    Winters grasp takes hold
    Icy breath cloaks barren branch
    Frigid beauty reigns

    • Thanks for the visit and the kind comment, Lavinia. I’m glad to hear you’re well. Oregon’s viruses are going up this week after months of being under control. It’s a strange time, and yet there is beauty everywhere if we simply look for it. Have a lovely day.

        It is a strange time, and I am waiting to see how all of this plays out in the coming months. I agree with you, beauty is everywhere, and that is a good place to focus attention.

        The sky is clearing over here in the Cascade foothills, and it looks like a partly cloudy to sunny day ahead. 🙂

    • Thanks for the visit, Jacqui. I’ve been in the mood for some calm lately in light of what’s happening in the world. And that bee posed for a whole bunch of photos. He was a busy bee! Have a great day, by friend. Bee well.
