Flower of the Day – Calla Lily

From my garden. I bought it in the spring, thought it would be long gone along with the tulips. Yet, here it is!

Having babies!!

Exploring

exploring begins

for this springtime butterfly,

barely there blooms hide-

just a lone dandelion,

no mislaying this spring lure

Time – Abhanga

here in this morning breeze

a flurry of blossoms

afloat, pleasing balsam

whose time has come

The elements of the Abhanga are:

  • stanzaic, written in any number of 4 line stanzas.
  • syllabic, 6-6-6-4 syllables each
  • rhymed L2 and L3 rhyme. Often internal rhyme is employed. End rhyme scheme x a a x , x being unrhymed.

Playful

under this bright afternoon sun

spring no longer slumbers

birds mass near blooms, they sound undone

playful, loud no hummers!
