crimson flames top trees,
fire-tipped shelter burns my eyes
with fall’s siren song

I love spring blossoms and the buzz of happy bees. Welcome, pink!

hunter by Angie Quantrell
Can you see it? My imagination took flight just as this tree spread its wings in attack mode.
How about you? What do you think about when you hear the word hunter?
layers, patterns mix;
tightly furled, mystery
blankets secret core

I spied this gorgeous tree and cones during a winter walk. With such fascinating texture, design, and beauty, I just had to climb a snow bank to get close enough and snap a few photos. So glad I did!
What mystery have you seen lately?

Happy Hump Day! How about a haiku challenge? I’d love to read yours.
a blizzard in May,
cottonwoods are cottoning;
warm flakes unmelting

Welcome to May cottonwood season! No deep breaths, wide open mouths, or keeping fluffs away from your face. Still digging out!
Wednesday is the Happy Hump Day Haiku Challenge! I’d love to read your Haiku, especially if it revolves around nature, kids, or family.
Happy Hump Day!
