Mindful writing — the art of paying attention
Hi Rosemary, I like your welcome to spring. Here it's fall and getting colder. Enjoy your blooms!
Hello, dear Barb, and thank you. Enjoy your cold! (I know you like some things about winter.)
Beautiful photo and poetry! I am envious of you heading into spring.
A lovely time of year – but the increased heat is a concern. Already we have had several bushfires nearby.
Oh the last one resonates - I came back from a trip and the african tulip tree is now a blaze of orange!
The unfurling of spring is so wonderful....a yearly miracle. Enjoy!
My beautiful purple bougainvillea is indestructable...i just love it although the thorns are huge now.Spring is wonderful.
Thank you, Sherry, for sharing your other-side-of-the-world spring on this dreary Sunday! I love the purple splash of bougainvillea – I’ve never seen it in its natural place, only in pictures or botanical gardens.
Did I type Sherry in my comment? It should have said Rosemary! I was still reeling from the shock of Mary's and Sherry's announcements.
I understand. They have been the mainstays of Poets United for so long.
The photos really made your words shine - a welcome smile on this grey UK morning
So much to welcome and celebrate here. The trio of poems are like the Irish triad of laughter, music and sleep.
That purple splash really gave me a smile. So lovely to see flowers in bright colours when I am looking at trees in red, brown and gold.
Well in South Aust it could be a bit warmer as we have had a long cold wet winter but I'm not really moaning the heat is coming one day!
I need that splash, reminder. Thanks!
I'll bet everything smells as beautiful as it looks too. We're enjoying the smallest of drop in temperature, but some excitable trees already have their party colors on here.
Yes, it's interesting to see the contrast from the other side of the globe. Although even though Fall is here it's still very hot, but that's the norm here.
Lovely. We're just now seeing our moonflowers blooming... although no giant moths yet. Love how each haiku highlights each plant.
This makes me hope for spring six months from now... lovely colors...
Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous! ❤️
I love them all, Rosemary. But the middle one is my very favorite. It made me want to reach out and touch a tendril...
It's so amazing that spring is coming your way. Here, we are seeing hints of autumn. This is lovely Rosemary.
Okay, anything with the word "bougainvillea" in it is bound for beauty. This is a wonderful haiku of beauty, hope and new life. Thank you for sharing it!
I too envy your entering spring a time where everything blooms. We are in fall and everything is changing and soon our trees will bare no leaves. (sigh)
Lovely poems to spring. We are just beginning autumn here. Thank goodness for cool weather.
There is so much life around us, we just have to open our eyes and see it taking place.
So, enchanting is your poem and this vine..arching towards the sunshine~ Bluetiful!
from drab to glorious. May we all have such a swan song!
Beautiful, Rosemary. I've never really picked up the knack with haiku. Others seem to have a far more delicate, nuanced touch with the form - so I, very much appreciate lovely pieces when I come upon them.
Beautiful colors, both in your words and in the photos.
Ahhh...a sight for sore eyes! Lovely haiku!
You've made spring come alive in words and images. Lovely.
