Summer Haiku (Linger)
Stretch toward the summer sky
Knowing fall is near
Are you ready for seasonal transition where you live?
It would have been easy to overlook this tiny wildflower growing in the foliage of my yard. I’m glad I didn’t miss seeing it’s delicate perfection, and I’m happy to share the vision!

Growth comes in unexpected places
Bursting through hard, rocky spaces

Rise, surge, grow

Delicate Haiku (Peace)
In striving to keep the peace
Think before you speak
This seemingly delicate blossom is sturdier than you might think. Without any concerted effort from me, it sprouted up on its own in my backyard! Years ago, someone planted flowers in my yard. It is amazing how they still grow year after year!
Peace is a delicate commodity, easily broken, and needful of our committment.
This is my fourth 2017 post for year three of Cardinal Guzman’s photo challenge, The Changing Seasons. You can post a photo gallery (V1) or a single photo (V2) that showcases your view of the month. You can check out the Cardinal’s page for the general challenge rules and join right in! His photos are fantastic! Like last year, I am planning to add a haiku along with my single V2 photo each month. Even though it has been said that a picture paints a thousand words, I like pairing pictures and words; both can still mean different things to different people.
All my previous Changing Seasons posts are in one place under the Changing Seasons header at the top of the page. And, I also have a bird header where all my bird pictures are gathered.
Take a look around my blog if you are interested! Comments are welcome!
