Poems to remember from 2011 - day 6, flowers and blossoms

"The violets in the mountains have broken the rocks." ~Tennessee Williams

So shall we go picking the blossoms and flowers today? (Though I must admit to a personal preference for the wildflowers!)

abandoned building site wildflowers in progress

Melissa Allen

every spring
a little more alone
wild violets

Melissa Allen

old sage's desk...
just enough space
for violets


the old hurts
resurfacing -
bluebell sky

Sandra Simpson

night blooming jasmine
some prefer whiskey
to chamomile tea

Marian Olson

pear blossoms...
which one of these houses
was yours?

Laura Garrison

plum tree
when it blooms

Alegria Imperial

the slam dunk of blossoms
through the rusted hoop

Claire Everett

another biopsy -
plucking at the flowers
of my hospital gown

Cara Holman

or butterflies
every place
every season
is perfect

Christina Nguyen

I know I am missing many other lovely haiku here, especially because I'm yet to go through the latest issues of NFTG and AHG fully. This only skims the surface of my memory.

North star obscured...
wild honeysuckle somewhere
in the dark

Just wanted to stop in a wish you an enormous bouquet of holiday blessings. Many of today's names are familiar, and all the haiku have an unforgettable aroma. I look forward to my next walk in this garden.
