Haiku Dialogue: Purple

This week’s Haiku Dialogue column, which can be found at the Haiku Foundation, was all about purple. Purple has been my favorite color for as long as this pedometer geek can remember so it was a pleasure to enter a couple of purple-themed haiku for consideration. Tia Haynes, who is editing these columns that she calls The Haiku Prism, chose one.  It is as follows:

pulling weeds

she sees a constellation

of violets

Check out all of the haiku this week at http://www.thehaikfoundation.org at Haiku Dialogue. Every shade of purple appears. There are haiku of purple flowers; there are heartbreaking haiku about bruises caused by abuse, and so many more.

Unfortunately, the photos that contained the more common dark purple violets weren’t as good, but I digress.

Happy Mother’s Day!


About pedometergeek

A pharmacist by profession, a haiku poet by nature, I read and write. I have a book of haiku, Ohayo Haiku, and another somewhat alternative haiku book, Three Breaths, but write other genres. I also read...lots of novels! My favorite is, and remains, Ayn Rand's Atlas Shrugged but I am also a big Harry Potter fan. I truly am a pedometer geek strapping on my pedometer as soon as I awaken.

    Now when I look at violets and even clover I’ll be looking for constellations 🙂

  4. Yeah, I hear there is a group for that (Procrastinators Anonymouse), but I haven’t sent in my application or attended any meetings. 😉
