Haiku Reflections: Warped Beauty



 Warped beauty in yard.

Summer tries to linger still.

Transition: must come.

  1. You capture for me how it feels when I am ready for change but there are delays that make no sense. I am slow to learn that we must abide, that change comes. Beautiful poem and picture.

    (PS I mailed the parcel today!)

  2. I like this one, Geraldine. We have some early flowers blooming again, and they do look out of place with the colored leaves. I agree with Sandy, though, when I am ready, I am ready!

  3. I drag my feet, stamp my disapproval and …change comes anyway. A delightful haiga, as always.

  4. Yes, summer puts up a fight, but the inevitable will come.
    Great words.

  5. This is the moment when we can’t wait nature to unveil its beauty, we try to drag its transition to happen faster…:)

    Beautiful thoughts..:)

  6. I love how you brought the word “warp” into this haiku. I would not have thought to use it but it is so descriptive of the transition process.

  7. I agree- it is hard for me to see the lingering summer flowers when suddenly autumn is all around. Beautiful post! Happy week to you…

  8. Transition : inevitable.

    so well put in words!

  9. A great measurement of time and life.

    Please have a good new week.

  10. love this Geraldine … warped beauty … fabulous!

  11. Summer does try to linger but she just can’t stay. Beautiful!

  12. It’s so true how nature is struggling. This haiku tells it like it is.

    Hugs and Happy Week, G 🙂
