My Lawn – Haiku

P1200823 signedNot for me a lawn

                                                          shorn and manicured to clean

                                                                       green sterility


My lawn is a wild

meadow where grasses of all

kinds grow and prosper


(Oh no, these are not caterpillars!)

P1200872 I'm feeling lucky signed


In my lawn, cheerful
golden dandelions dance
in the summer breeze

P1200832 auto-cotrast signed

The fluffy ones are
ready to fly to the end
of the horizon

P1200819 signed


Somewhere there in the

clover patch there’s a four-leaf

Haven’t found it yet!

P1200812 signed

But I found a bug

sitting pretty, sitting still

meditating… Wow!

So, learn a lesson

form the modest bug, sit still

and meditate now!

P1200850 I'm feeling lucky signed

Smile and be grateful

for the splendour around you

Have a lovely day!

    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.

  3. Wonderful photos and writing, Irina!

  6. Irina has always been a very creative soul and her creativity she generously shared through the different mediums: painting, photography, dance, acting and poetry. Whichever medium Irina chooses she engages her audience and gets acknowledgement and admiration. This little piece is well written and well presented.

    Hi Irina…

    Well I guess we are having a renga here (I mean more than one haiku, right?. Check out this link )

    I totally enjoyed the post…
    I love the way you have highlighted all those the natural pressences. Your lawn is a great poetic source my dear!…

    “Somewhere there in the/ clover patch there’s a four-leaf/ Haven’t found it yet!…

    I am sure you will find it !!!

    All the best for you… See you at twitter, Aquileana 🙂

      Hi Aquileana,

      Guess what…I’ve never heard of renga before, so I’ve looked up the link and yes, you’re right, it’s a kind of renga. I’m so glad you enjoyed it. And thank you again for being a mentor.
      I’ll keep looking for the four-leaf clover.
      Hugs xxx Irina 🙂
