Sweetie, I like the haiku modern forms and the image you painted is much like the one I just read in Gert's poem. I have never seen a black lotus, but now I feel as they I've seen a painting of one. Beautiful! Love, Carolyn

Great picture and don't worry that this Haiku won't follow the 5-7-5 format. You#ve penned a nice contrast in this one, Annalise. I also wrote one about a lotus flower. Will post it soon on PoetrySoup....All the best!...Gert

You did not stick to the 5 7 5 format. However, I like this short poem. There is a marvelous pond in the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens with flowers in it and goldfish. I look foward to seeing it again next spring. Peace & Love Matthew Anish

I can just imagine that flower and its reflection on the pond's surface. You have written this haiku well.
