A handful of haiku for the Sunday Toads Challenge

First, to ALL poetic peeps from the pond!!!

It has been such an honor and joy

to have been featured for your inspiration!!

I had such a great time discovering

which photos inspired each of you individually,

and I really enjoyed the amazing direction

that each of your words took these photographs.

It was so fun exploring the multi-dimensional layers

that make us each so unique and special!

Thank you so much Real Toads!!

Here’re the photos with just a bit of haiku for fun!!

just a ripple in the shadow cast

by an old-green pier post

it persists amidst the current

blinded by fair papery petals

worth in every flower birthed

beauty in the fair and in the fading

drooping swoop of lady slipper
her full face hangs
softly speckled

in soft-fiddled-fists

stretching palms to sky

with fond feelings greet the day

words poised for passage

slow rooted toes tremble

in awe of rising tide

ocean of forget-me-not

  1. Hannah, your photo post was gorgeous – in pics and words. You know the “palms stretched” has to be my favorite above, but I love them all. Especially this phrasing:
    “her full face hangs
    softly speckled”

  2. Hannah, I do appreciate you sense of ‘beauty in the fair and fading’, so very lovely. The photos alike yet the aspect of each impression, very much so individual. This was such a fun way to delve into the pond with you guys. Thanks for the treat and the warm welcome!
