Drunk & Orderly

Peoniesheady pink flowers
drunk from the night’s dew –
recovering slowly,
standing tall on slender stalks
trying not to topple over


Carpe Diem Special #163 Lolly’s fifth a peony bush (tanka)

  1. Loved your dropping the -dis-.
    In fact, the entire presentation of those plants with their mophead flowers lolling from side to side, is wonderful.


  2. It’s so wet in the UK at present everything in my tiny garden is drunk and flopped over permanently – enjoyed your image very much. Gave me a new way to appreciate my soggy garden.


I look forward to reading your comments
