Summer


morning paints 
garden of tulips,
summer blooms

~0~0

bright tulips
dot fields of summer,
ice cream pops  

~0~0

yellow umbrella
seashore with noisy seagulls,
summer concierto

  5. Such refreshing and relaxing poems. I liked how you compared the tulips to ice cream pops in the second haiku. The first one is nice too - I imagined colorless tulips being splashed with morning paint.

    Beautiful imagery! :)

  7. Well you can keep the ice cream, but the rest of the scene the cat and Pat would take, after getting dumped with more snow, gone now though.

  19. ...my son has just gone through one.. no TWO boxes of Edy's Fruit Bars (no sugar added (sweetened with Splenda... wonderful!) and antioxidant "All Natural" (with lots of corn syrup) in one day ... and the colors DO look like those tulips...

  20. I've always thought of tulips as true spring flowers, but I guess many places they are summer's harbingers :)
