Haiku For You
new mountain journey begins
when June warms soil.
This one makes me want to get out to my walking. Very nice!
That's an inspiration worth having! :-)
Or, what about when July makes the soil hot? Or, how about in August when it is good and dry? Nah, August is too hot. September is a good month...LOL! Lovely!
They generally start blooming in June, when there is no chance of frost. :-) If the weather stays warm, they might continue on through September.
Better to trek in the mountains when the snows have gone:-)
Indeed it is, then these little pinks would be a good indication for those traversing the trails.
Nice symbolism here. Love how aspiration or the mountain can be seen as a simple mountain walk or aspiring to go higher in some other way. At least that's the way I'm reading it. Love it!
It is kind of a tricky weave this time. The meaning of the flower "Mountain Pink" is aspiration. So in some direct sense the flower "walks" as the mountain warms to the welcome of summer. Though anyone taking that trek would also be aspiring to greater heights (the trails are not for sissies). It is woven, and your interpretation is excellent.
I love the symbolism in this hiaku. :-)
Thank you Misha.
I'm not going to delve into the symbolism as it's been done, but it was apparent to me the second I read the words. Beautifully done and another indication that I have the most talented friends in the universe! ♥
:-) Love ya Jo, I am not sure that you aren't just a tad bit partial, but that's okay too... I like it that way!
Ah this is beautifully written!! Well done!
Thank you Jenn.
we have these huge pink flowrs outside our house, on our walkway. Today as I was doing yard work, trimming weeds, etc, I was taken back by thier beauty and their symbolism of the season...a rebirth, if you will.
Do you know what type they are Lance? I love flowers so much that I keep them blooming in our yard from the time spring starts until winter sails the first flakes down to the ground.Rebirth is a wonderful thing, for nature, and for us :-) Thank you for being here.
Would love to walk a mountain and take in the scenery.Kathyhttp://gigglingtruckerswife.blogspot.com/
I remember the Glacier National Park trails in summer time, maybe because it was one of the first mountains I walked upon.
I like the poem, but the title, Mountain Pink, has me imagining all the small fragile flowers just beginning to bloom.
They kind of had to work together for this one. In order to get the image across the way I felt it needed to be, I could not repeat the flowers name in the actual Haiku.
That worked out very well! Great job!
Thank you very much!
Sounds like summer inspires someone? : )
Well you can blame Jo for the summer and spring influences, she has really been craving sunshine... so I plant a little bit here and there for her to enjoy ;-)Spring, and Fall are actually my favorite seasons... the most colourful changes begin then.
Lovely stuff!I'm curious - the name November Rain? Unique... wondering what inspired it... or are you not telling?Mystery is part of the charm... http://writer-in-transit.co.za/maestro/
I relate to all things water, but LOVE the rain... walking in it, watching it when it is too strong to walk in... listening to it with a candle lit in a barn or some other building that lets me watch as though I were still standing in it, but let's me keep the candle burning (you get the drift)... and November is my month of birth. Sorry if I stole away my own mystique :-)
Did someone say June? Bring it on!Catch My Wordshttp://joycelansky.blogspot.com
Hehehhe, it is going to be a welcomed warmth when it arrives!
