Ghost Writer #38

Carpe Diem "Ghost Writer #38"

So I wrote 2 haiku for prompts each  of the three prompts:
withered mums, winter grasses, orchids


feathery plumage
dusted with snow
winter grasses


feathery pampas
brown and gold
against winter white


end of the season
heads bowed in sorrow
withered mums


withered mums
forgotten on doorstep
faded dreams



aerial roots 
spreading tendrils
fragrant orchid



fragrance abounds
in overgrown hothouse
winter orchids

    1. Thanks! Don't give me credit for the orchids - I photographed a large variety of them at the botanical garden's in Washington a few years ago. I wish I could grow my own.

  6. I love how you picture pampas grass, while simultaneously admitting that my wife hates the stuff!
