Hydrangeas


A recent painting, acrylic on canvas, 12 x 12 inches.
.
Blue clouds, brains of rain,
'vessels of water', in Greek.
What angel arranged hydrangeas?

One of the most unique haiku I have seen. The third line really comes as a surprise - the wording also makes you want to read it again and again.

Here are some Haiku that could be added to your blog:

1)

for a moment,
the waves show
the water beneath

2)

ah!
the butterflies'
shadow

3)

sleeping
after graduation -
dreams of cotton in the wind

4)

opening the door
to sweep the dirt out -
heavy summer rain

5)

Cannonball Mountain -
on all sides
the white flowers
lean towards ocean foam

Hi Bhalachandra.
Thanks.
Repeating sounds is fun but you
have to know when to stop.

I could have extended it -

High, ranging clouds
An angel's strange arrangement
- Hydrangeas

But it's a bit over the top.

Your poems are very evocative.
I'll add them to the blog.
I am trying to get some other SYs
to add some too.
