Red Hot Pokers burn
All consuming torches
Stoking their demise

  9. Dawn,
    You are one amazing gardener. I can barely keep a houseplant alive. I am humiliated, but it is true. I am enamored of your garden and your green thumb. all of your plants are so lovely and so tall! I love the haiku. they do look like red hot torches indeed! Thank you for sharing such lovely flowers with us.

  10. I love the flowers. Thanks for sharing.

    All the best, Boonie

  11. Wow! That is some exotic garden you have! First, the hollyhocks, and now the red hot pokers! (I tho’t they were Indian paintbrush or maybe bottle brush, but you were absolutely right.) They burn in all their brilliance until their time is up…
