One Deep Breath- Garden Haiku

My view out back

Blooms spiraling up
color spreads bottom to top
swaying in the breeze

My backyard where daughter will wed Aug. 26th at sunrise.

Blooming witnesses
waiting for a blushing bride
path to her future

Love your backyard view! The spires of blooms just pop out against the dark green of the bushes and trees beyond. Loved this: "Blooms spiraling up" Some really lovely haiku, Tammy.

Can't wait to see and hear about the garden wedding.

beautiful vivid colors; amazing.

Such a garden! I need to come up again for a visit Tammy and bask in its beauty and the beauty of your friendship. Perhaps after the wedding and sometime in September when things settle down for you?

I hope you will consider printing these pictures and putting them with the haiku hommage to your daughter's wedding. What a memorable gift that would be.
