Lovely to see the single (?) peaonies from behind for a change.

I am catching up on my Haiku writing and checking out the different perspectives. Lovely format. Hope I did it right. Does it always have a Nature aspect?

Oh...I can smell their pink perfection just looking at the photo. So beautiful. Love the words that celebrate its bloom.
Happy Friday, Meri !

Good morning, Meri! GORGEOUS photo. I love peonies. But my childhood memories always associate peonies with ants!

I love your haiku, too. "Ephemeral." Beautiful word.

And "in a transitory world, peonies blossom."

So true. Here's to enjoying them while they last.

Pink are to Peonies as notes are to music. So lovely and fragile, their ephemerality is remembered in the heart. I love your photo. I just saw Rebecca's link up so mine is there now. Thank you.

Stunning... so delicate.

All of life is transitory... no matter how we might wish it otherwise. At least we can be assured that there will always be something new on the journey.

Thank you for this loveliness today.

Words and stunning picture pair up beautifully. Sadly, peonies DO fade so quickly.

Inspired by your words and photo:

peonies
unfurling petals

Hiya again.

Just read your comment on the main haiku page.
I had no idea that my page was closed. Thanks so much for alerting me. I confuse myself with my different pages :-)

I was a little sad that nobody had stopped by. Anyways, the door is open.
