Day 173 –Wild Violets- Haibun Journey View From My Window

I look out my window and gaze at hundreds of wild violets and dandelions. The white violets amid the purple surprise me. A sea of colors for the eye to feast on or weeds to clutter the lawn — the perspective is your choice.

bloom across the lawn
no grass here

spring rain
the lawn violets melt
into watercolors

It was nice to find my writing for today also fit the Carpe Diem Special #143, Kala Ramesh’s “wild violets”

seek on high bare trails
sky-reflecting violets…
mountain-top jewels
