  1. Ah, the cycle of life. a true mystery.

  2. hope for new life,, very nice..

  3. Indeed it is…from death, springs life ~

  4. Great shadow shot as always and the perfect words to match — these days a lot of us could use the reminder of hope for new life! Enjoy your weekend!


  5. The desert can be a cruel place – yet the flowers will bloom again, despite the arid heat. This is a reminder that the bloom will be on again…

  6. Perfect poetry to accompany this image.

  7. Lovely photo – I’m glad it’s not just me that thinks dried up seedheads worthy of recording!

  8. amazing how even after something looks dead, it still has some life to it

  9. What a great shot, and great words to go with it.

  10. the picture and the haiku are just great…the mystery of nature is profound..

  11. Hope springs eternal, isn’t that what they say?

    Beautiful macro shot, MMT.

  12. This picture is especially appealing to me because of the colors and the bokeh. It is absolutely beautiful. It won’t be too much loner before the bud will be blossoming out again. Lovely captures.

  13. Evokes nostalgia laced with hope.

  14. For me your haiku captures both nature and our own life cycle. Couldn’t be better.

  15. Timeless mystery….LOVE it. Both your work with words…AND the photo!!

    Off the Pier…shadows is my link, if you’d care to view.

    Have a great day.

  16. A great haiku and like the use of the word ‘desiccated’. The mystery has resolved here in the last line!!

  17. Perfect Haiku for the photo!

  18. Lovely….as usual…MMT…continue to make us all spellbound..

  19. That’s a great photo, and the haiku reminds of the grand cycle of life. Been fighting a battle here, but seeing improvement. Still hope to get together over the Winter.

    Take care and be well.


  20. Funny how I haven’t heard that word in a long tie. It shouldn’t be so that our day to day vocabulary is so limited, but we (I) seem to fall into that habit.

  21. Great shot and lovely haiku!

  22. Even our dear flowers drop their seeds and return to brighten our days the next spring and Christmas. This photo is so pretty and the haiku matches it perfectly. After 30 minutes my thumbnail has not gone up on the site so here it is. Genie

  23. Lovely even in death as the new life will spring from it’s seed. – Great photo and Poetry.

  24. Beautiful as always. At least you follow the form in all of your Haiku. Well done.


  25. Why would you do this. What some poets are writing is not Haiku in any form. Only if they say that it is modern Haiku is it so. Your Haiku is beautiful. Keep it so.


  26. Love this. You have such a skill at combining your photography with your words.

  27. blooming of flowers to evolution of life. its mystery everlasting
