Three Takes on a Lotus Haiku

I
lotus viewing:
still blossom, changing light;
countless sights
II
a still lotus,
a static eye, and shifting
light; boundless hues
III
view one lotus
until the changing light
makes a new bloom

Flowering Haiku

hectic sidewalk
frangipani blossoms
stepped over


calling bees
scent, color, and glory
unrivaled


the hillside
when rhododendrons bloom
shangri la


for two weeks
the valley flowers,
its spell cast

 

purple circle
rings the base of a tree
regal shadow
