Not for me a lawn
shorn and manicured to clean
My lawn is a wild
meadow where grasses of all
kinds grow and prosper
(Oh no, these are not caterpillars!)
In my lawn, cheerful
golden dandelions dance
in the summer breeze
The fluffy ones are
ready to fly to the end
of the horizon
Somewhere there in the
clover patch there’s a four-leaf
Haven’t found it yet!
But I found a bug
sitting pretty, sitting still
So, learn a lesson
form the modest bug, sit still
and meditate now!
Smile and be grateful
for the splendour around you
Have a lovely day!

you neither chirp nor tweet.
Your laughter is much like mine,
my cackle is much like thine.
We are two sister souls,
one clad in feathers,
the other in clothes.

O what a gloriously lovely poem! Thank you for sharing x
Thank you so much for your kind comment. Much appreciated. 🙂
My pleasure, sweet lady. Thank you so much for your lovely comment. 🙂
You have put wonderful creative endeavour into both haiku and photo essay. It is often the simple grasses of the fields, the daisies and the dandelions that bring inspiration. Lovely Iriina.
Benita, I’m so glad you liked my creation. I like my wild lawn because it reminds me of the meadows in my home country. I used to find a four-leaf clover quite often. Thanks so much for commenting.
Wonderful photos and writing, Irina!
Thank you so much, Aaron, for stopping by. I do appreciate your encouraging comment.
This is lovely and warm–makes me long for spring! I especially loved the haiku about the fluffy ones! Brilliantly penned, Irina 🙂
Thanks, Caroline. I’m so glad you like it. The fluffy ones look so beautiful. 🙂

I’ll keep looking for the four-leaf clover.
Hugs xxx Irina 🙂
