#Haiku: Breath of Life

Life blooming in rocks- Mesa, AZ

lemon chiffon puffs-
growing among craggy rocks
tiny breath of life

©2021 Linda Lee Lyberg

Author’s Note: This tiny plant is growing in our front yard, which is mostly rock. The flower heads are smaller than a pencil eraser. I have no idea what they are and the leaves are as delicate as the blooms, but I suspect it is in the dandelion family. Written for Day 12 Of National Poetry Writing Month.

  1. Hi Linda, some people put their own names on their flowers. “lemon chiffon puffs” is a good name for these pretty miniatures. We had a flower that we didn’t know what it was. Well, it was very pretty. But name, drew a blank, and no one else seemed to know. Put the question on your blogs and FB. That’s what I did, and soon had the answer. Try it.
    I finally finished writing mine tonight, I had several interruptions during the day.

  2. Reading the comments, I must be the weirdo I suspected I was: I usually tell people not to tell me what it is that I’ve discovered. It takes away my childhood wonder and imagination that nature photography brings out of me. I love your “lemon chiffron puffs.” 😊
