Poetry Friday: A Haiku Walk

  Michelle at Today's Little Ditty is hosting 
this week's roundup of poetic goodness
with a celebration of Nikki Grimes's 
newest book, Southwest Sunrise.

Taking pics is my dialy infusion of goodness this spring. Today's haiku is inspired by pictures captured on Thursday's walk.

Red rhoddies cascade
Blue sky frames the pink dogwood
Purple iris waves   


  1. Beautiful, Ramona! Thank you for taking me along on your walk.

  2. Thank you for capturing and sharing the beauty!

  3. Marvelous capture of each one, Ramona. I've said it before, but will say again. You have the most beautiful flowers everywhere! Happy Mother's Day!

  4. Your refreshing haiku made me smile, Ramona, especially since I love haikus. I captured it for a special place in my #NatureNurtures2020. If that is fine with you, I will share it in one of my blogs this week. Maybe you will compose a haiku for your new little rose bud.

  6. Your haiku captures the beauty of this season. The iris was my mother's favorite. I love it, too, and need to plant some! Cherry blossoms are a feast for my eyes and we do not have glorious rhododendron in our zone but I rejoice in seeing your gorgeous photos. Thank you!

  7. Beautiful Ramona, thanks for the breath of nature–in your haiku and images, always so inspiring!

  8. Thanks for this breath of spring goodness. I'm waiting for my irises... should be soon.

  9. What a gorgeous parade of flowers and words. Thanks, Ramona!
