HAIKU: Response to One Single Impression Prompt of 4-27-08
reach from the fish’s mouth
wind blown shadows
The prompt this week at ONE SINGLE IMPRESSION is "flowering." (You can visit One Single Impression to read the full prompt and enjoy others' responses to it.)
The scene of this haiku is one of the first things I savor each time I walk out of my building into the courtyard. Sometimes it's in bright sunlight, sometimes in shadow, but it always catches my appreciative eye. The delightful woman who has the studio next to mine tends this particular beautiful garden of the many gorgeous gardens on the grounds. After many years of careful planting and tending, she can no longer do the work herself as she's too physically frail, but she does supervise the work lovingly.
May 4, 2008: At the request of Storyteller (see comments) I'm posting a photo that is somewhat similar to the succulent plant referenced in my above haiku. Though the one in the garden here is more star- than roseatte-like, and has longer "stems."
I could probably have found an image of the succulent in the garden planter here, but I don't know the exact name, so had to search gazillions of google results for "succulents" to find even this similar one. :-)
‘til next time, keep dreaming,
[aka: Patricia Kelly]
