Flowers - Haiku prompt



Thank you for all the well-wishes for health for my family. I think we are finally on the mend. Flu is not fun.

I was playing around with my camera yesterday, taking pictures of the tulips my husband brought home the other day. I like how this shot turned out. It struck me that this would make a good haiku/poetry prompt as well. I am so ready for spring.

I took a 3-5-3 syllable pattern this time:

red petals
cup honey nectar
springtime bliss

If you want to play along, just leave your link in the comments. One of these days I'll give Mr. Linky a second chance, but for today we'll do it the easy way.

I'm going to be lazy and not play along but just sit back and enjoy the beautiful picture and your words. Is that allowed?

I'll pass. I have never quite got the knack of haikus but am more than happy to read yours!

I can, I can
Haiku, like you!
