Colourful haiku

Good morning Soupers!


Here is a bit fun: I challenge you to write a haiku/senryu/monoku/or any other form of "haiku", choosing one of these pictures as inspiration. The only requirement is that the poem must include a reference to a colour.


If you wish, you may indicate the title to your poem here under comments and Soupers are invited to visit your page and leave a comment if they so wish.


I have started this off with my haiku,
Spoonbills:


rose coloured wings
multiplied in reflection –
a breathless morning


Happy Quills!

Su

    ok, now that I have time to see what's going on, here is what this last picture made me think of: my sweet Razzmatazz/ has blossomed before my eyes/ when was she pregnant? (razzmatazz is my new black cat and to me she is a miniature version of this blossomed majestic beast.

    I love cats - a black Percian I had, had lived to 21 and 1/2 years! This ku wants me to reach out and stroke the cat (Razzmatazz, not the panther...:-) ). Love it :-)

    You looked further than I did - I had looked past the blue sky also being reflected in the rippled pond. Like this a lot. :-)

    I love this image, David.:-).... The first time I saw my cat carry her litter by the neck, I got upset - until it was explained to me that it is the most comfortable and logical way to carry the little ones.
