Finally…:)

LOVE brick, Orange poppy, summer sunshine

Happiness realized

In my little world today

Promises fulfilled

Day’s filled will sunny smiles

Summer finally woke up!

Tanka

The Flowers

tulip field--french--Haiku
Original Poetry and Photograph by Leona J. Atkinson ©2016
based on what I saw in the last line of this French poem that was titled:
“Suite” (from Le Dit des couleurs, 2003)

This is the French poem
les fleurs viennent
de l’envers de l’île
et y retournent

This is its English translation
the flowers come
from the island’s underside
and go back there

Fall’s Day One

Fall’s entrance was dramatic!
She certainly let us know she had arrived!
Gusts of wind and drops of rain quite climatic,
Showed us Fall had been revived.
She continued most of the day,
Her rampant weather to bestow,
And then summer jumped Into the fray
With a beautiful sunny rainbow!
But summer had to leave at last,
For her days are now all done.
And Fall returned with a chilly blast,
As her reign officially begun.
