Haiga, nature, Poetry Friday

Summer pickings

As we made plans for the summer, I knew our back-and-forths would make it hard for me to do much writing. So I decided to keep it simple and combine poetry-writing with my love of photography… a sort of haiga.

Here are three gardens I snapped in last little while (sadly none of them are mine).


Garden galaxy
Milky Way turned molten
June Calendula



Hollyhock—so cute
in flouncy summer sundress
of rose seersucker



Summer sky blossoms
celebration petals spark
a garden party

  1. Lovely… photos and words! I especially like your lines for hollyhocks “in flouncy summer sundress… of rose seersucker.” My grandmother’s yard was bordered by hollyhocks; I remember making princess dolls of them.

  2. Each one of these poems is beautiful and poignant. Love this one especially:
    “Hollyhock—so cute
    in flouncy summer sundress
    of rose seersucker”
    My mom made me seersucker sundresses when I was a girl – the epitome of summer. Thank you for reminding me of those dresses, Violet! =)
