Haiku: The Unseen



papery brown bulbs -
hidden deep in the centre
next season's flowers

shadows on grass
darkness shapes forms of
absence of sunlight

from my computer -
invisible signals link
to the worldwide web

I love the one about the flower bulbs. What a neat topic to write about for "unseen"

I only wish it was springtime here...

what a nice varied collection...i especially like the thought of shadows as "unseen" sunlight!

Shelley said...

I also particularly like the one about bulbs... such magic. Amazing photos from the hill walk, too!

Such beautiful flowers, inside and out.

My favourite is the one about the bulbs too! Lovely thought of the flowers all hidden just waiting....

My favorite is the third, seeing that we are linked by the unseen!

Lovely!

I am an expat living in Oz.
Miss NZ, but I am from the Nth Is, but spent most of my married life in the Sth in Chch, which I now find I miss the most!
I love that city.
Loved looking at your familiar pics from the hills- made me homesick again!

Lovely, all of them! I do like your idea about the "unseen" links from the computer to the world at large...very timely and clever!

From Michele's...Just chose you!
Beauty and how refreshing as we, up here in Canada, say good-bye to the leaves! My husband actually went X-country skiing today!

Lovely poems! I especially like the image of the papery brown bulbs enclosing next year's flowers. And I think that is the first haiku I have seen on the theme of the internet!

I like the connection between nature and technology. Smooth! Beautiful image, too.

Popped in from Michele's tonight.
