My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

Haiku Reflections: A Vision in Mauve


Also submitted for the One Single Impression prompt: Spectacles.

I also worked in an eyeglass reference into the title (kind of) for the other meaning of this word, ending with “s”.😉

Have a wonderful week!

  1. Gee, you always find the most beautiful photos and then add your beautiful words to fit perfectly. Love it!

  2. Hi Teri, Actually, it’s a photo I took in the latter part of summer (but not this year)LOL. 😉 Had it in my files and decided to finally use it for this prompt. I love the vivid colors of these flowers!

  3. Wow, what a great photo you took, so beautiful. And your haiku is so timely with Fall almost here.

  4. I agree here, Ger, this photo is wonderful!
    Although, taken awhile ago – it also seems that the colours of the flowers in autumn become more vivid.
    I Love your words, and very clever of you – “shades” of mauve . 🙂

  5. It is a gorgeous spectacle, and more to come!

  6. Brilliant both picture and take on the prompt!

  7. Wonderful, strong colours in this image and a delightful haiku!

  12. Hi Joe, Thanks dear. 🙂

    Hi Brenda, Actually I was referring to “vision” in the title, but shades definitely works too. 😉

  13. beautiful Geraldine!

  14. Lovely…oh, I wait for such refreshing..thanks!!

  15. perfect……the ‘spectacle’ never ends….

  16. Nice picture, Geraldine. The haiku fits it nicely.
    Is there a double meaning here (hint, think football)?
    If so my favorite fall colors are crimson and cream for Nebraska.

  17. Hi Sandra, Thanks for stopping by.

    Hi Ramesh, I like that…refreshing! We can always use a freshen up break, right! 😉

    Hi Jim, LOL, you make me laugh dear Jim. Good one. All these extra meanings,love it.

    Happy Week, G 🙂

  18. i am eagerly waiting for the orange and gold to arrive.
    vivid picture too. 🙂

  19. PS: I love your new header photo, such a cool shot. And the background color is perfect too.

  20. Ger,
    Oh, of course – I got it! LOL!
    But I do also love the colour you used for the text of the haiku.
    I also absolutely love your header here, Canadian geese – always seem to be associated with autumn to my mind.
    And what a lovely grouping of these geese!

  21. So… Someone interpretted differently…
    Lovely poem…

  22. Past the summer spectacle, Geraldine.. 🙂 I await your autumn one. Nature’s seasonal spectacles are so cyclic, aren’t they? Beautifully writ.

    Leo – My OSI take

  23. Hi Totomai, So am I. Can’t wait! 🙂

    Hi Joe, Yes, I like the new “birdie look ” too. 😉 It’s fun with such a big header allowance for this WP presentation.

    Hi Brenda, About the geese, this is actually a pic on the shores of the Wascana. The lake was partly frozen so in a bigger image of this photo it looks like some of the geese are skating! Or so people told me, previously. LOL I love the Canadian Geese and they are always such a big part of that park, aren’t they?

    Hi Locomente, Welcome and thanks again for the wonderful prompt this week. It was fun to read the different interpretations and of course your beautiful poem.

    Hi Leo, Nice to “see” you again and thank you.

    Happy Wednesday, G

  24. Ger,
    I’ve watched the geese “skate” many times on this lake!
    I love that this is of Wascana, where geese do indeed play a big role!
    Brenda 🙂

  25. lovely capture…and all the beautiful colors just keep changing…looking forward to fall…some cooler weather and brilliant colors…

  26. How luminous they are… Exquisite!

  27. Hi Brenda, I have too. So calming to see them in graceful motion. Makes for a lovely scene.

    Hi Brian, You’re a Fall person I know. I’m so happy it’s on the way too. It’s already a LOT cooler here, what a relief. I’m back to full-tilt energy. 😉

    Hi Vesper, Thanks friend, what a lovely comment.

    Hugs and Happy Week, G

  28. Stunning my dear G. Good heavens, is there anything you can’t do, and you do it all so fabulously
