September photos and haiku series, dVerse — OLN

chamomile drowses
sleepy in September’s sun
winter’s bedtime tea

paper monument
to wasp ingenuity
soon vacant castle

resized purple flower bud 092921

purple crepe awaits
seeking guidance from heaven
Sol’s opening nod

resized red pine halo of needles 092921

us pine trees critters
with fuzzy green needled fur
we wiggle in wind

resized smallest sunflowers ever 092921

September late sprouts
make haste to shine like their kin
bright tiny starlets

resized sunflowers bowed in prayer 092921

bowed like old women
fading congregation prays
warm afternoon sun

resized strawberries in tub 092921

strawberry plants bloom
heedless of summer’s ending
flaming exception

resized tall grass stalk 092921

now caterpillar
on a stick, warm in the sun
soon cold winter seeds

    I loved this offering, Lisa. Thanks for catching the Linky SNAFU. I hate it when that happens. This Haiku Carnival was wonderful. When we used several of my photos as a prompt, it might have been fun to add the responses have to be haiku or tanka.

      Thanks, Dwight. I was shocked at how big that wasp nest is getting. It’s still buzzing with activity. I went to pick a strawberry the other day and the whole back of it was eaten and a wasp flew out of it. I’m danged lucky I didn’t get bitten or stung.

    Very evocative and well crafted little haikus. It’s a difficult form to get right, but you make it seem effortless here. I especially like the one of the nodding old women-sunflowers.

    I like the creativity of this one and the alliteration of the last line.

    Thanks for keeping the pub going. It is a fun place to connect with poets around the world.
