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.
