One Tanka, Two Haiku


I removed the second haiku/picture to correct the  spelling and now, drat it, can't make the updated picture post. So I reposted the entire blog -- but am unable to transfer the comments.
But here's the picture . . .  and I'll put the haiku below it.

Aerial assault --
Blur-winged bees descend upon
Fragrant pear blossoms.

Did you meet that snake in person? I don't think I would have hung around long enough to take a picture. I enjoyed your poems - very calming.

Kaye Barley said...

Tammy said...

Love the first one especially and can just see the Indians instead of the trees. Thanks for the beautiful pictures and fun words for the day.

Thanks, folks!

Jean, the snake is a Northern water snake -- long time resident in our green house. She's not afraid of me and I'm not afraid of her. She let me poke my camera within a few feet of her.

I loved 1, 2, and 3-words and pics!

A new style of pictures !

I biggified (is that your word?)the first picture. Yes I could imagine the Indians on top of the mountains ridge like in a western. My husband loves to watch these old westerns. There was one this week when the good-guy (I guess) looked up from his campsite and all the Indians were looking at him from the top of the hills, all around. This is a seamless and evocative tanka – very nice.

Wonderful shot of the snake and a description of its dignity and beauty.

Vicki Lane said...

Thanks Tipper and Miss Yves!

Vagabonde -- Biggify is a word I got from Tammy over at Fairlight Farm. Merisi at Vienna for Beginners uses enbiggiate. Yhanks for the kind words!

Thanks, Paul -- I do find snakes quite beautiful.

Lovely! 'The golden edge of day!'

Aerial assault is an attack from the air. (Flying) Aerial=pertaining to the air and/or flying.

Miss_Yves said...

On your picture, "Arial "isn'it written instead of arial"? never mind , thank you for your explanation
