[my mother in her younger phase]

Happy Birthday to my mother [Mrs Mary Mitchell] who is 86 today; i remember as a child growing up that her favourite flower was Carnation. I don't think it is her favourite flower now though. [note to self. i must ask her]

Carnation furls

1897



Last Sunday of May 2016. I'm sharing my haiku process for today, i welcome your critique

sunrise established
a sliver of moon still wanting
to compete

sunrise secure
a sliver of moon still wanting
to compete

sunrise secure
a sliver of moon still waiting
to compete

sunrise secure
a sliver of moon waiting
to compete

sunrise secure
a sliver of moon lurking
In competition


And here's today's haiku; what do you think

a sunrise secure -
this sliver of moon lurking
in competition

[i used one of my old photos for today's haiga; to appreciate the haiku more, use the revisit hyperlink - When Three Ships Sailed]

three mountain peaks -
after three days grace
quell mutiny's heart

sky and bird songs -
incredible harmony
greet thee morning

dew wetness -
a new wildflower greets
the morning

three mountains peak -
after three days grace
mutiny's heart quelled
