Two long tailed ducks
rise and fall in churning surf
serene amidst chaos

Late blooming lupine
brilliant against autumn leaves
discordant harmony

    Lovely, even if I feel like one of the ducks! I love how your photographs capture a moment and the words capture the photographs.
    Keep on creating, Molly!

  5. These are beautiful, Molly. I really love the “discordant harmony” of the lupine and the autumn leaves.

  8. Amazing how those ducks can stay serene amongst all that topsy turvy water. I like both of these haiku, and I love this second haiku your words and pic are wedded so well with the bend in that stalk, thanks!
