HuMp DaY Haiku - Stand out


 Showing your colors
As you stand out from the crowd.
Let your true self shine!


I noticed this red zinnia in a field of orange at a recent lunchtime visit to my husbands work. one must take opportunities when they arise.  


I started doing Hump Day Haiku with Carla Sonheim's Silly classes...  and decided as a challenge for myself, I'd continue.  In this process, I have found that creating a haiku (non rhyming poem with 5 - 7 - 5 syllables per line) feeds my soul. I especially like creating them to go with my photos and art. 

Would you like to share a haiku you have written? 

You may include a haiku in the comments, OR you may copy your blog post url (featuring a haiku) and add a link to your blog using Mr. Linky. And consider visiting other contributors blogs to see what they've created and say hello.

Like your photo and haiku, Helen. Zinnias are such happy flowers. I wonder why I didn't plant any this year? Unless an "opportunity arises" in the next 24 hours, I'm haiku-less this week. Maybe there's something in the archives not yet shared. Hope you're enjoying our dry, warmer weather. I knew the minute I whined last week, things would improve. Hmmm... maybe that's a good reason for the occasional complaint?
