Lazy Poet’s Thursday Haiku


Waiting and longing

for the dappled hellebores

to do their spring waltz

Great minds really do think alike don’t they? This week my restless friend Jo not only had the same thoughts as I did, but she totally eclipsed me! She’s a sweetheart so I’ll forgive her! Pop over and read her hellebore haiku.

      1. yes, we do have dark ones, too and I remember I made a blog post called “hele-boring”. Hope you can find it. Regards Mitza

  1. Eclipse? You’re joking! I love the idea of the Spring waltz 🙂 We have some of the plummy dark ones too. (or we did last year, before Mick had to move them all 🙂 )

  2. I miss flowers like Hellebores, daffodils, snowdrops, all those delightful signs of spring you get in your part of the world Gilly, and this is a beautiful photo with such meaningful words in your haiku. You and Jo really are soul sisters.

I would love to hear from you . . .
