Monday Morning #Haiku 8 — Narcissi


The ancient Greeks believed it unlucky, if not fatal, for people to see their reflection; thus, in their mythology, Narcissus pined away out of love for his reflection in a pond. After he died, a beautiful flower sprang up to mark the spot.

Lucky narcissi,
oblivious to their charm
unlike their namesake.

  1. Lovely flowers and haiku, Sarah. 🙂 Have a great week.


    • Thank you, Sylvia. I photographed those flowers on a family outing last Friday, when we spent the day at the most beautiful garden in the world (in my mind it is, anyway!).

      You have a great week, too 🙂


  2. Thanks for my morning smile, Sarah.


  3. So sunny!! It does bring a smile with the lovely Haikku. Mirrors I can do without in the morning but these lovely offerings are a delight.


    • Yes, those morning mirrors are rather a shock to the system — especially the magnified side to a shaving mirror, so thank goodness I’m not a man!

      Glad you liked my haiku. Thanks 🙂
