fluffy, pale, shapeless
with just a hint of young self
cattails in old age

Prompt – Inspiration
This haiku was inspired by the photo taken on a walk in March 2015.


VintagePADThis April I’m celebrating National Poetry Month by posting some not-as-yet published poems from my files, along with what inspired them. If the prompt inspires you to write a poem of your own, you’re welcome to share it in comments. Whether you write or not, thanks so much for dropping by!

    Ouch! I feel a bit fluffy and shapeless this morning. LOL But I am colorful in my hanna pjs. I guess I ought to get dressed soon. I’m enjoying a long morning of getting ready for poetry friday. 🙂
