amidst rose petals

amidst rose petals

a lady bug sits…

trying to fit in


morning sun whispers

to nudge her tenderly…

a ruby  takes flight

Inspired by a video that Elizabeth Wesley sent me-Love is in the Air!

    Okies now [no one kill me Gwen asked me to review her haiku] first haiku..lines 1 & 2 are very nice..line three is a judgement/ a subjective statement [ie it's all in your mind, your opinion and you are personifying not done in traditional haiku] if you really saw this..what else was happening? did you hear anything? ahhhhhh you did SMELL somethings so line 3 can bring in scent! verse 2 all personification all subjective..free verse..Light & Love
