  1. Pretty!

    Would you come and see my Ruby Tuesday post?

  2. You always share something intriguing! I don’t think I’ve ever seen California Buckwheat?! It does look rather weary and depleted … it’s passion spent.

  3. Awesome MMT again a wonderful picture along with a nice haiku. Nicely done and so different from the idea I have on passion. Thanks for sharing.

  4. Great macro shot and love the haiku.

  5. Superb lines and image !!!

  6. Love the color. And great haiku work.

  7. Can’t help but wonder – are you an insomniac, or just an early, early riser? The early bird gets the shot, and you always do…..I sure hope your passion has returned full-force!

  8. Very special shot !

  9. Great metaphor for passion fading away. Do you think “withered” instead of “discarded” achieves the meaning of “fading”? 🙂 I think of discarded as being thrown away. Nice haiku 🙂

      Your suggestion would work, except that I’d be short one syllable in that first line. Besides, these really are discarded blossoms, because they have fallen from the plant and are lying in the grass. However, it’s interesting to “hear” what others think of what I write, so thank you!

  10. Beautiful
    Thanks for sharing;o)

    Happy day****
