Haibun: Pink Lilac


close up of pink lilac flowers, leaves and raindrops


Our garden changes colour after an early morning shower. Yellow poppies, primrose and pansies look vibrant and replenished. In years gone by, fishermen dried their nets here. Different guardians blessed with different times.

ready to weave our home
in a raindrop

  1. That is a superb photograph, Xenia, and such a lovely colour. We have honeysuckle blooming next to my study window and its shape looks a little like that. Its colour reminds me of pear drops. πŸ˜‰
    I can imagine your garden changing colour – yellow flowers are such happy flowers. My favourite is the raindrop of a haiku. xxx
