violets
they are not
these red wild ones
yet who knows the names of
every dream in the sunshine

i used an internet image cropped it applied several filters and frame for this resulting haiga


call us back to
innate beauty with sure bursts -
flute-shaped furlings

by chance to gaze -
bright golden sunlight kissing
your blooms lightly

billow and swirl
ye winds of March April May -
astound yellows

they sing the songs
of joyous Easter season -
yellow poui

craft the mornings
repair the noon day angst
of fiery swoons

gently your hand
deal; for only a short while
these *poms exist

add a frame of
poesy; words to linger
as blossoms fall

*poms = pom-poms shortened

The golden aura of poui can still be seen on the mountain sides; so uplifting

FILLING THE MORNING WITH WONDER - A HAIKU STRING
how they twitter
these birds of the morning -
breath in breath out

breath in breath out
the newness of today
tis sweet repast

tis sweet repast
dew drops frost green leaves -
ah sun rising

ah sun rising
shards of light image the walls
azure-filled window

filling the morning with wonder/watergrass flower suckles a bee
