crepe paper petals

reach for the sunshine at noon

the orange sunset

~

crepe paper petals

crinkled and lined with shadow

the contrast is bold

~

reach for the sunshine at noon

petals fully extended

catch the bold rays now

~

the orange sunset

illuminates the green field

many hues to see

I have been writing all my life but for the most part, it has been a secret. My parents did not believe writing was a good way to earn money so I hid my poems. Then one day, I wanted to comment on an essay that a friend had written and found myself with a blog. That quiet whisper inside said, "You can write your poetry and no one will ever know.". I knew nothing of followers and the like at that time. So, here I am trying to learn my craft and enjoying every moment of it. My personal details are, I'm 57, married for 39 years, have one grown son who is God's gift to us and last but not least at all, I'm a Baha'i which basically means that I love all humanity.

  1. 🙂 thanks for sharing your response to the challenge Carol 🙂

    each Haiku is lovely – standing alone – but together, they flow into a seamless image – so very well done 🙂

    my fave:
    reach for the sunshine at noon
    petals fully extended
    catch the bold rays now

    absolutely wonderful

    Cheers~ Pat
