I like the juxtaposition of the picture and the poem. Nice.

beautiful how you've captured the light through the leaves like that.

Roswila said...

Oh, yes, house plant art. I've spent many hours enjoying my resident green artists. Especially against the rice paper shade I have on the window nearest them :-)

Sandy said...

Your houseplant art is lovely, and so is your haiku.

Clare said...

Fantastic photo of very cool "houseplant art"! Terrific haiku too.

jem said...

You've made a really valid point here, that being the need to stay observant to our surroundings and being willing to see new things in old places.

Your haiku is so beautiful. It brings a touch of sunshine here inspite of the Texas rain.

I am moved by all the joyous comments and, also by how much this simple and beautiful houseplant touched all of you.

Peaceful journey.

The better way to have a nice picture of flower of leave is to tazke it against the light as you did for that picture
The leaves and the light both are beautifuller
It is like an association, I believe
