Frost-damaged sunflower, Apache County, Northern Arizona

after seven frosts
even sunflowers yearn for
departing autumn

  2. Gorgeous! I like how you have intwined the two last prompts of CDHK to one beautiful and very Basho-like haiku MMT … thank you for your daily effort to compose and share haiku.

  3. Damaged, but still gorgeous!

  4. I found some giant sunflowers but their heads were quite bent and heavy with seeds almost ready for harvesting. Must put it on the calendar for next year.

  5. I can identify with that sunflower sometimes. Enjoyed this one.

  6. love the thought of sunflowers yearning

  7. true that 🙂 and that’s a lovely pic…

  8. true that,,, and that’s a lovely pic… 🙂

  9. That sunflower looks as if it has given up the ghost. Time for autumn to move in and take over. Nice!

  10. Awesome photo…every autumn I take photos of a row of sunflowers growing on the side of a city street, through cracks in the concrete…they started just last week and usually are good until Halloween. Your photo reminds me of the giant sunflowers that finally blossomed late September in our back yard and would scare me at night …really!

  11. isn’t this truly lovely……:)!!!!

  12. That is so clever. Sunflowers do look so forlorn after the first autumn storms. They really do look like they are done with summer. 🙂

  13. Excellent haiku but that picture is so sad.
