Haiku: End Of May…

Spread the love

“Among the changing months, May stands confest The sweetest, and in fairest colors dressed.” James Thomson


Haiku: End Of May...

Haiku: End Of May…

May has come and gone…
Dressed in nature’s brightest hues
New Moon and spring blooms

“Another May new buds and flowers shall bring: Ah! why has happiness no second Spring?” Charlotte Smith


Haiku: End Of May... some Saiga Antelopes die

Haiku: End Of May… some Saiga Antelopes die

May has lost … Saigas
Days of sunshine, thunderstorms
June’s sweet buds beckon

More Below!

“For every marriage then is best in tune, When that the wife is May, the husband June.” Rowland Watkyns (Watkins)

Haiku: End Of May... Busy bees and more

Haiku: End Of May… Busy bees and more

May’s toils are long done
Work behind, more before us…
Busy bees in June.

Positive Motivation Tip: May has come and gone…. Make the best of the coming months.

    I thought the only color of bleeding heart plant is pink, glad to see a white one.

    I love may, but June brings a warmness my body just loves. Only in June, July and August can you wear those flip flops and shorts and read in your hammock where I live. Beautiful pictures.

    I never saw that type of antelope before. I love how the photos really go with the haiku. I always loved writing haiku poems when I was in school.

    May is now gone. Such beautiful photos. I am unsure why but I have always been fascinated with capturing photos with bugs on flowers and I love looking at them too.

    This is one type of poetry that I would love to explore more. I’ve done a couple of Haikus before but not as profound as the Haikus mentioned here. May is so special for me for it it is the month I first saw my eldest daughter.

    All these pictures are so cool. Especially Siga Antelopes die looks very different & unique. And the flowers looks really awesome too.

    time flies so fast. I was just thinking about how we are halfway into the year 2015. In 6 more months we will be preparing for a new year

    I definitely cannot believe that May has come and gone and June is here! I definitely plan on making the best out of the second half of 2015!

    I love May because it’s not too hot yet in Sacramento and you can see quite a lot of wildflowers all over the place. We also get busy towards the end of May because our son’s birthday is on the 1st week of June and we do a bit of preparation.

    The end of May means hotter weather in June. Bleh! That’s all I can think of right now!
