The yellow of narcissus....what a thought. It all comes from somewhere doesn't it. Nice one.

Special memories in the Wordsworth poem -- i like how you've added it as a "found haiku". :)

Perhaps that would be a fun exercise -- haiku all around us -- if we have the heart to look. And your narcissus haiku has heart ---

What a lovely haiku!! and I like how you "found" WW haiku...I've always been fond of his poetry and loved visiting his place on Lake District. Brilliant!!

Ah, Wordsworth. Incidentally, Daffodils is being studied as one of Romantic poetry by my son in school.
