Monday Morning #Haiku 162 & 163 — Scarlet Pimpernels

Scarlet pimpernels
Array of sun worshippers
Petals spread in joy

Scarlet pimpernels
Nondescript weeds on grey days
Petals closed in sulk

Monday Morning #Haiku 161 — Green (2)

Plethora of greens
Embrace the dryad in you
Breathe that verdancy

Monday Morning #Haiku 158-160 — Foxgloves & Bees

Bumblebee size bells
Buzzing instead of ringing
Musical foxgloves
*
Bees drift somnolent
Bindweed climbs up foxglove stems
Gardener unwinds
*
Bees cart pollen home
Empty tubular bell blooms
Become pixie hats

Monday Morning #Haiku 157 — Potter’s Pots

Yearly pilgrimage
Expedition to buy plants
A simple pleasure

Monday Morning #Haiku 155 & 156 — Dandelion/Grandpa

Dandelion clocks
exist to taunt gardeners
and thrill herbalists.

Grandpa wears a hat
for fear of losing his hair
in a puff of wind.

Monday Morning #Haiku 154 — Cherry Blossom

Wedding photo shoot
Cherry blossom in churchyard
Nature obeys bride

Monday Morning #Haiku 152 & 153 — Seagull at First Light

Prehistoric shrieks…
Nightmare of pterodactyl
just a herring gull.

Rude awakening…
Seagull in hobnail boots
stomps across flat roof.

Monday Morning #Haiku 151 — Tulips (02)

Tulip sweet delight
Assortment of bold colours
Nature’s candy mix

Monday Morning #Haiku 150 — Sunbathing

This week’s haiku is dedicated to all of my blogging friends across the Pond whose skies are shrouded in grey. Sending you hugs, smiles, and spring cheer from the South of England 🙂 

Honeybee sunbathes,
double petal daffodil
its yellow lilo.

Monday Morning #Haiku 149 — Camellia Flowers

Winter hangover
Camellia shouts springtime
Instant cure for gloom
