Many thanks to Cindy Knoke for her kind permission that I use this image to inspire and partner my Monday Morning haiku for this week.

  4. Gorgeous this Sarah…Cindy’s exquisite photograph and your beautifully delicate Haiku which captures the essence of the California desert flowers so perfectly 🙂 xxx

  5. “Pink gymslips” is a beautiful coinage, Sarah, not to mention the gorgeous alliteration (assonance; and how it buttresses the overall personification of the flowers) of it driving the haiku. Cindy’s photo is lovely as well.

    • Thank you, Leigh. I always love your in-depth analysis of my work. If somebody asked me to describe why I’ve written something a certain way, I’d be hard-pushed to answer them, but you do just brilliantly on my behalf. And, yes, Cindy’s photo is lovely, as are all of her other ones of flowers, birds, and nature in general.


  6. Both exquisite and I love the pink gym slips!

  7. You’ve really captured the delicacy and transience of the flowers in your images Sarah, lovely.
