petal lanterns

Carpe Diem Special #198 Hamish Gunn's 4th Petal lanterns



Inspiration:

petal lanterns —
a waterfall of flowers
her lips touch mine

© Hamish

A very nice (delicate) haiku by Hamish to inspire you to write a haiku or tanka trying to catch the spirit of the haiku by Hamish.

Here is the host's attempt:

her sweet perfume
overwhelms my senses
Honeysuckle blooms

rosebud lips
trumpet the notes of love
whiff of petals

Thanks to Chèvrefeuille for daily prompts on

    1. Thanks. My mom would talk about my nephew singing his sweet little songs with his rosebud lips. I liked the rosebud lips for this totally different application.
