Humility and Tenacity – Haiku – October 30, 2014

When I think of humility wild flowers come to mind.  They aren’t delicately beautiful like roses or other decorative plants … but without their humble beauty the fields would be drab.  And of course they are tenacious.  The humble wild flowers, from poppies to Queen Anne’s lace, will grow where a rose would wither!

without pretension
in fields and empty woods
wild flowers flourish

scarlet as roses in the arbor
poppies in the fields

through the snow
white snow drops blossom
auguring spring

covering the old crab tree
perfuming the park

along the path
humility and tenacity
bloom in the fields

  2. I really like how you’ve done this — combining humility and tenacity work well here together — and what gorgeous photos to go with your haiku. The first little white flower reminds me of something that grows around here — a member of the nightshade family, I think —
