A BLOGGER’S HAIKU
fragrance of lilacs
spring leaves, mauve buds, open, still closed
readers have waited
by Terrill Welch
I recently purchased haiku mind: 108 Poems to Cultivate Awareness & Open Your Heart (2008) by Patricia Donegan. The book is beautifully structured, presenting the poem and a piece of prose about her experience of the poem and a biographical paragraph about the haiku author. Donegan’s book and the lilacs I picked last night were my inspiration for today’s photograph and poem.
