Floribunda Hotel
Dirt pile shrinks, beds grow
Red, orange, yellow, and green –
Seasonal tenants.

Dahlia
Red velvet spokes
Circle their churned butter hub —
Summer’s color wheel.

Summer Miner
Rat-a-tat-tat-tat
Hollow head drives long beak deep —
Green wiggling nuggets.

 

Reena is the host of Reena’s Exploration Challenge.  Reena wants us to write a haiku this week.

  1. You really packed a lot of Spring is sparse haiku. I like the last one best; Woody Woodpecker was a fave cartoon as a kid.

  2. Thank you, Glenn. With the suet cage out there, it draws a variety of woodpeckers in. Woody has rejected the handout and is busy in the back woods, looking for live snacks. Woody Woodpecker is a fun cartoon character.

  3. The photographs are vibrant and stunning, Jade, and I love the woodpecker – I haven’t heard one yet, but we usually have one that returns each year. My favourite haiku is the one about the dahlia, which reminds me of my grandfather’s garden; he didn’t have many, but he was so proud of them!

  4. I like the idea of “seasonal tenants”. So true! The sound of woodpeckers in my yard does not bother me. They can rat-a-tat-tat all they want. 🙂 I enjoyed your haiku trio!
