Ouch -- "death becomes you"! Very moving images, with the November rain as well.
yeah, the second one wasn't so nice. Glad I didn't have anyone in mind.
Actually the thought came from our host saying his wife didn't like carnations in a bouquet.
I like both of them -- but my favorite line pink blossoms genuflect
I agree with Jen and Becca ... love the genuflecting carnations under the November rain. The second haiku stopped me up .. as I'd always associated cemeteries and death with Chrysanthemums - I was surprised to see that they are so commonly used for funerals now!
Thanks! - I really hadn't thought about them for funerals until our host mentioned them.
Beautiful - the first haiku brilliant.
Wow! genuflecting adds such reverence...love that last line too...just stunning!
Yes genuflecting was so much better than ....bowed their heads in the mud. More uplifting
I don't think I've ever seen "genuflect" in a haiku before. Nicely done.Vase of White Carnations
November rain will make even the most stalwart blossoms genuflect, I think.Not Even One Carnation
That it may!
Those humble carnations..
I like genuflect as well.
Nice haiku set Dolores ... extraordinary word "genuflect"
