Poetry Friday–Fall Surprise… Haikus

Bearded Iris Surprise… ©2021 Michelle Kogan

Happy Poetry Friday!

november backyard
bearded surprise, but will you
bloom in time…

And look here comes color… but I don’t know if she will open because snow is coming too…
Oh by the way, she didn’t bloom in the spring.

Another haiku caught my eye, through my window.
Maybe it’s a #throughwindowku …

two mourning doves
sitting on wire, descend
with falling leaves…

Be sure to stop by Matt Forrest Esenwine’s blog Radio, Rhythm & Rhyme for this week’s Poetry Friday Roundup, thanks for hosting Matt!

Enjoy fall’s falling leaves…

  1. All lovely. And I have a weakness for ‘late bloomers’ 😏

    And the wait continues: Will she bloom before the snow hits you. It is a good time to cuddle up and be cozy this weekend. Good luck with the holiday show, Michelle.

  3. I love seeing so much green in November…but will they bloom in time? 😉

    Oh my, it looks as if your weather is like ours, things still trying to bloom. You got it right, Michelle, will it make it? Best wishes for the show!

  6. janicescully says:

    Lovely, Michelle. I enjoy the sense of urgency. Will it bloom in time? I hope so.

  7. jama says:

    You captured such lovely moments in your haiku. I like the sense of hope in the first one despite the concern, and the descension of the doves as if they, too, are leaves.

    An iris blooming in November! I am surprised! Keep us updated on how that goes. Thanks for the 2 haiku… I like the bearded surprise.

  9. Tim Kulp says:

    Thank you for sharing these Haiku poems! I really enjoyed the drama of the first one. The ending is so strong!

  10. Linda Mitchell says:

    Best wishes on your holiday show! I’m wishing you lots of sales…but not any exhaustion. Your haiku are wonderful. There’s something about those little brush strokes of words that make me happy. I’m pulling for the second flower to bloom now!

  11. Linda says:

    Our weather has been much warmer than usual, it looks like you have too. I enjoyed your haiku, especially the one about the mourning doves. Good luck with your holiday show!

  12. maryleehahn says:

    Both of your ‘kus are wonder-full. You captured the doves perfectly. And what’s up with the iris this year? Two different places here in CBus I’ve seen some blooming, and a family member posted pictures from up near Cleveland of hers blooming! Good luck with the show!

  13. Denise Krebs says:

    SO good to see you here, Michelle, however briefly. I love the mourning doves, and I feel I can see out the window with you as they fall like the falling leaves. Sweet! I hope the flower makes it through the snow.

  14. Leigh Anne Eck says:

    Such anticipation for your “bearded surprise.” Lovely haikus!

  15. haitiruth says:

    I love the birds descending with the leaves. Ruth, thereisnosuchthingasagodforsakentown.blogspot.com

    Beautiful haiku. I hope the iris was able to bloom before the snow.
