TJ’s Household Haiku – Bouquet

Place Monge Flowers
I saw and photographed these lovely flowers in the Place Monge markets one April in Paris.

Promt word: Vibrant

Gone are the flowers

From the fields to the cities

Beauty at a price

Hi Ho Haikuists! It’s Samedi again! Lawks a Lordy how the time doth fly! If you are yearning to unleash your inner Haiku Master then let your creative spirit free and write a haiku based on something (anything) on the picture or use the work “Vibrant” in some way in your poem. Put a link to your post in the comments or add your hiku directly to the comments. (push the little black speech bubble to activate).

Last week’s prompt “Shadow” produced many shades of expression. Thanks to the marvelous micro-poets who distill their thoughts into this miniature form.

Ritu began last week with a reflection on her protective shadow. Lovely.

Shadeau has produced a wonderful chained haiku reflecting the shadows changing with the light. Wonderful idea.

Kia asks some eternal questions here. “We see but through a glass darkly” sometimes and yet we want to know what is out there. Great ideas.

LuAnne from Wind Rush has accompanied an exquisite photo with a lovely haiku. Shadows down a country lane.

Freya has shared a connection with her shadow. Our eternal companion. A great photo too!

Judy has highlighted the drawbacks of a shadow which left her roses “too much i’the shade”.

A nod to Jung from Kat Myrman has us thinking. Yay for mentioning Jung (a favorite of mine)

Life home and away has a shadow in its element. A great idea here.

ISM has overshadowed her lovely photo with some profound shades of grey here. Some unique angles on the prompt!

Silvery shadows are wonderful in this lovely haiku from Image and Word

Tucked into a corner has excelled with the genre in these three brilliant takes.
