wysteria myst

From Carpe Diem Haiku Kai, a haiku to “revise”:


in the moonlight,

the color and scent of the wisteria

seems far away

hear flute weeping

pale purple tears in moonlight

dropping over wall

abstract glory

abstract autumn



bleed red and purple

leaves sizzle across cool sky

autumn’s frenzied dance










Linking to Carpe Diem Haiku Kai; “autumn abstract” image by unknown artist.

lotus opens wide

in ageless petaled beauty

God’s world inspires he(art)

purple passion awakens

adorned with peacock feathers






Joining CDHK and Kala Ramesh for “lotus viewing”

now i lay me down

A “gentle scent of lavender” at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai today…


pillowed prayers’ peace

gentle scent of lavender

perfumes silent dreams

purple fields in evening praise

raise reverent cloistered blooms

dewy morning veins

garden pail holds cabbage head

salivates coleslaw

purple-petaled dreams

delicate as veined parchment

let freedom’s bells ring


Linking with Carpe Diem, thinking of freedom protesters in Hong Kong

coming home


purple profusion

rhododendron blossoms cheer

welcoming party
