Waiting for sunset,
even the weeds grow weary,
their clothes in tatters.

  1. It’s definitely the “changing of the guard” – as the seasons are morphing from autumn and fall fun to chilly silly winter snow fights in our neck of the woods – one minute it’s autumn, the next it’s shades of winter – I suspect we may see winter full on before the calendar says so. And what a lovely way you’ve described this for your neck of the woods. 🙂 Have a lovely day.

  2. Nice image, looks like a “belly” shot.

  3. I really like this picture a magnificent frame, the haiku is delicious.

  6. This is WAY to pretty to be called a weed. It is pretty as a flower. Love the haiku…it fits perfectly. genie

  8. Great photograph, so much happening with it, close and far away. Great haiku.

  9. What a gorgeous shade of pink those tatters are!

  10. Wonderful haiku, MMT! 🙂 It mastches your wonderfully forlorne plant picture so beautifully too!

    An aside. Once in class I mentioned that I would love to have a century plant. One of my students went home, to Mexico, for the weekend and smuggled in a Mexican century plant for me when he came back.
    The seasons got it too, we had a harsh winter later and the cold got to it. My century plant died before its hundred years.

  11. Hi there – interesting angle on the plant. Well done.
