Daily Moments, Jan 15 2016 – Haughty peonies (troiku)


like a starlet
peonies bow lavishly
in the limelight

like a starlet
serving admirers
with her beauty

peonies bow lavishly
soaking up praise
humility tossed aside

in the limelight
even with wilted petals
beauty in God’s eyes

  1. A beautiful collection of haiku! I love the bright happy beginning and it’s bittersweet end that offer such a lovely message. For aren’t we all a bit wilted though still beautiful in God’s eyes?
