Lavender Oxymoron

 

gentle spikiness
a perfumed oxymoron
of lavender clouds
bees buzzing in the garden
memories of happiness

My response to Carpe Diem Imagination with Paul Militaru #2 “gentle scent of lavender”

I’ve been looking forward to this new episode of Carpe Diem Imagination with Paul Militaru (URL: https://photopaulm.com) as I’ve used his photographs before with his permission. Chèvrefeuille has chosen a beautiful photo entitled “gentle scent of lavender” to inspire us to create haiku, tanka or another Japanese poetry form. He has also shared examples of his own writing:

lavender field
their perfume overwhelms me
pleasant dreams
a lavender stuffed pillow
Ah! that perfumes

lavender flowers –
bumblebees collecting honey
in the backyard

her pillow
the sweet perfume of lavender
arouses my senses
morning glory grows
embraces the warmth of the sun
