Rare Flower

such a rare flower
plucked and blown by summer wind
floating on haiku

Kim M. Russell, 2017

My response to Carpe Diem honours Jane Reichhold (1937-2016) A.) already red

As promised, Chèvrefeuille is honouring Jane Reichhold with a special theme week for her 80th birthday. He has shared some of her winter haiku:

swollen
the amaryllis bud
already red

melted snow water
trickling over the veins
of a dried beech leaf

moving around
the wind in the pines
comes home

…as well as one of his own:

I cherish
the beauty of a queen
red amaryllis
