Flower Haiku Poems


These 5 haiku for flowers that I am sharing with you were inspired by the tiny white flowers in the photograph. They appeared one day, early in the morning, in the grass near my villa. I just happened to have my camera with me and an impromptu photo shoot took place.

How these little flowers managed to pop up in the lawn between my neighbor’s unit and mine is a bit of a mystery. The homeowner’s association spends money on keeping the grass green. One aspect of this ‘striving for the perfect green’ is the use of a lawn sprayer who comes in and sprays everything with a combination fertilizer, insecticide and weed killer.

Regardless of how, they did show up. A close up through my camera lens showed them to be very pretty little flowers. They were only around for that day as I went out looking for them the next day and they were gone.

Well I still have the photographs I took, one of which I share with you here. There are also the haiku poems that I wrote in their honor and which I also present for you here. Like most of my haiku series, I have provided a poll so you can vote for your favorite. Even if you like them all, please vote for the one – the one you feel is the best of the five.


Tiny White Flowers In Lawn Haikus


#1

Little white flower

In field of green blades sitting

Moon passes over


#2

Peek-a-boo flower

White petals spread in green sea

Sails into the light



#3

Tiny flower lost

Amid a sea of grass blades

Eludes salvation



#4

Trumpets in the grass

Ringing clear tones white-on-white

Brief Experience



#5

Open in field of green

Bright white flowers attract bugs

New generation

This is just beautiful. The photograph is inspiring and your story about how you mysteriously discovered these white trumpet beauties is a wonderful touch. I love admiring the simple things we come across in our daily lives and you have taken me into a moment in yours. Thanks for sharing. Your haiku tribute was very refreshing.

Thanks Missolive and btrbell for the visits and comments to these haiku inspired by these "weeds". The flowers are pretty and I have noticed them in other places competing with the expensive grass.

I wonder if these white flowers have a fragrance? Reading that people spray everything with a combination fertilizer, insecticide and weed killer is sad. Nice photo.


bluEyes 18 months ago

But what are they called? I took a picture the other day and can't seem to find them anywhere

Angelo52 18 months ago from Central Florida Author

I don't know what they are called. They were just tiny flowers growing on a plant in the grass. Most people would consider them weeds since they ruin an otherwise grass lawn.
