gone to seed


slender, elegant

aged with grace and dignity

wears white hair like crown

    I have never seen dandelions this way… but now I see an old woman.

    I love the dual meaning of your poem, Lynn. Easy to feel/look that way these days. Gotta stay out of the strong wind ๐Ÿ™‚

    So much said in so few words; the magic of a sweet haiku/senryu.

    Never thought I would say this of a dandelion, but Gorgeous. Great poem!

    A white mane certainly does, aging with all dignity, lynn!

    Haiku is a nice interpretation of the photo.
