  1. fresh starts so slender
    songs so green, awaken hearts

  2. A bit of a difficult haiku for me, as a Dutch woman… but I translate it and I get the meaning (at least I think so!) Beautiful!

    I love you

  4. Lovely (and I love asparagus, too).!!!!!

  5. Great close up of the asparagus. Lovely haiku. Let me know when the harvest occurs, I have a couple of great recipes.


  6. So elegant and graceful–photo and haiku. Thanks.

  7. Beautiful photo and Haiku. I love asparagus and we have a lot of it growing out in back. I can hardly wait and I wait no longer for my “Release My Heart” as it has arrived. I just love it more now that I have it in my hands. It’s beautiful, just beautiful Dawn. I will treasure it always and thank you very much for the old Hollyhock seeds. I have a lot of Hollyhocks growing outside and I’ll be sure to start these in their own place and make a special sign for them. Oh I’m so excited, love my heart. Thank you!! 🙂

  8. Asparagus — a big favorite in my household. But most of all, I love the use of etude in your haiku.

  9. Wonderful photos, cool haiku too. Thanks for these.

    All the best, Boonie
