summertime’s yellow hope

I’m sharing a “cascading” haiku written by the creative host at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai who regularly shares a challenge or haiku prompt with his readers.  I also admire Van Gogh’s paintings so my own haiku (below) is inspired by both!

hopeful new day
available in yellowish
a great sunflower

a great sunflower
desirable to bright sunlight
bows its head to earth

bows its head to earth
a possible new flower opens
promising dreams

still life radiates sunshine

dying exudes warmth
