Poem 127 – Haiku for Flower

Haiku for Flower

fuchsia petals hang
some stand like legs poised to dance
the fall is graceful


It’s Friday! That week flew by like a flock of hungry geese. Did it feel fast to you as well? My eyes are heavy and my limbs are tight with wanting to sleep. But, here we go. Into another day!
