inhale the beauty

delight in the annual

display of wonder

My iris never fail to bring delicate pleasure for the few days they visit every year.

I am linked with Rebecca and others who embrace the weekly practice of 

haiku.  Please visit Haiku My Heart for a special treat.


  1. Beautiful haiku for a wonderful flower ~ my irises are just at the bud stage ~ Poppies are blooming, though ~ thanks, namaste, ^_^

  2. There is beauty around us to behold, if only we will!

    Time to Say Good-Bye

    Oh, and could you get rid of that horrid word verification, please? Blogger is now doing automatic spam detection, so word verification is no longer needed. Thank you!
