    I’m liking your blog and love your haiku poems especially. While I’ve been ‘Nature Writing’ for a while I’m new to haiku. Your recent haiku of the Brimstone butterfly and Goldfinch prompted me to have a go at a couple of my own …

    goldfinch sing
    harmonic colours
    of aural alchemy

    morning glory
    ethereal beauty
    of holly blue

    Best Wishes

    1. Thank you so much for reading and commenting, Clive. I enjoyed your haiku very much. You could change ‘sing’ to ‘song’, omit the word ‘of’ and still retain their beauty and meaning, and the lines can be reversed too!. Best wishes, Kim
