February’s Floret

Vinca Vine blossom

Vinca bloom

A morning delight


While I slept

Beautiful posy in sight

Ahead of Springtime

A Winter’s Delight

Ornamental Cabbage and Kale In Winter coved by raindrops

Cabbages and Kale

Wear Ruffles and Pearls

In the land of kings

They dance til dawn

While sparrows watch

And nightingale sings

Their splendor soon fades

As warm breezes kiss

And sunshine brings

The end of Winter’s ball

And thus herald in

Sights which are Spring’s

Neapolitan Sky


Neapolitan Sky--Photo and Haiku
Original Photograph by Michelle Desjardins ©2016
Original Poetry by Leona J. Atkinson ©2016

I was inspired to write this Haiku after seeing this photo posted in a group called “Cloud Watching and Beautiful Skyscapes” that I belong to on Facebook. As soon as I saw the photo I thought of Neapolitan!
Michelle, who took this photo, gave me permission to post it here on my blog along with the Haiku I wrote.  I am so glad to be able to share this beautiful sky photo with you and the Haiku as well.
