Floral Inspirations: Haiku

One morning last Fall, I was lucky enough to capture these beautiful images. The way the succulent red blooms stood out against the stark background of dried leaves and grass seemed so evocative to me...


Fallen floral jewels

Miracles of nature

Sun-seeking even in death

Succulent blooms

Fighting decay

Death-defying vibrancy

Bravo, Christiane. The images are themselves silent haiku so we have a double pleasure!
