Prompt 13 ~ Photo Inspiration

Photograph: mindlovemisery

branches implore clouds
to spare them from Thor’s thunder
lightning their answer

blushing pink blossoms
send their scent to flirt with June
the breath of summer

"Flirting with June" is a great line! These were both wonderful haiku! (Better not let Fireblossom see them!)

Beauty of summer and love of clouds described so well:)

I can sure see how you saw Thor in the first photo, Susie, and the color of that lilac would be too much to resist.
Very well done, both of them!

Lovely Susie, I especially enjoyed the second. Your photos are wonderful as well, of course!

Susan said...

There you are--both the NO and the YES answers from nature/God! I like them both.

Wonderful mix.

very delicate...

L. Edgar Otto said...

Between the lightning and
Her sunset pink aura
Falls a record high low in summer
Coldest since records kept past fall
Loves blush aware in anticipation
Or blind at the height of passion.

Ella said...

Wow Susie! This one is enchanting-I love the photos and the way you guided us with your lovely verse :D

Mother nature can be gentle and rash all in the same season - and each has a special beauty - which you have succinctly captured with these two contrasting poems.
