young leaves
I would like to wipe away
tears in your eyes

a bush is the little garden

slowly a snail seeks
his path between Cherry blossoms
reaches for the sky

behind Ganesha
Unggoy and three tortoises
flowers growing

chillis in the pot
bird’s nest on top of the tree
bikes in the garage

buds of poppies
lavenders behind
mass of colour

spring in the garden
flowers, icons and pets
wonderful feeling

  1. such crystal clear pictures. Love seeing the projects undertaken in your garden. Hope the snails don’t get in there 🙂
    your haiku chain sums up the pleasure you derive from your garden.

  2. These are clever. I like the one with the bikes in the garage and the way it directly follows the one about Ganesha – such a light merging of the mundane with the spiritual.
