summer's natural fireworks
red orange yellow
I've been admiring some new coneflowers I planted near the end of summer last year. They aren't the typical purple color I have planted in other areas of my gardens. I made a list of words to play around with and did some research for synonyms for blossom and bloom. I wanted a third word to go with those two but didn't really find one I liked. Instead, I learned a new word and decided it was a great lead for this haiku; efflorescence - state or period of blossoming.
It's late and dark right now but I hope to take a picture and include it in the am.
