Pink blooms


© Joy Ann Jones


enamoured: 
yellow bee tangled in her     
flowered-pink skirt  
   
~0~0~

pink petals 
falling one by one,
i come unhinged -

~0~0~

broken, her words flew 
across mud-stained walls - still   
softest blooms    



and Haiku Heights:   Free  - Joining you for the last day of September Challenge ~

  1. Each tristich contains a gentle thought and some sadness. They are the perfect accompaniment to the picture.

  12. I love all these, Grace, but especially the first. I too have gotten tangled in an unwise relationship. Thank you for all your kind words and good wishes. I'm happy to know I'll see you again around the "bloghood."

  17. Why didn't I leave a note the first time I visited? These are no longer first impressions: I love the bee in the skirt--the same one tangled with one of mine! Fickle! No wonder the petals fall, unhinging the emotions one by one. And then, of course, one might call that broken, the walls are shaken and broken, but words, they say, cannot hurt like sticks ad stones. I am not so sure. Fun but sad images to play with. I chose the same picture.

  18. Beautiful trio, being the first haiku my favourite, especially these words: tangled in her
    flowered-pink skirt


    By the way, just yesterday I was taking a photo of a bee in one of our hibiscus, exactly same colour as the ones in your pic.
