Gardening is a creative art if we can give it a quality of art.
Ooooo! Succulent little poem that saturates my imagination. Sexy too!
Wonderful haiku, sensual and mesmerising - the imagery is vivid, the sounds of the words as they roll off the tongue are a joy.
Ahh, a love poem slipped to someone, hand gently touching hand.Then again, a post-it note left on the windshield of the hunky new gardner. Lots of possibilities.
I was about to move away from my Haiku obsession but your offering might begin a movement. My innocent mind read this as simply about water and mother earth. But then again...
Beautiful Haiku. It's always good to meet another poet who loves this form.
Sweet and simple poetry. Love the watering can.
Fabulous, succinct, profound.
Those are some kind of kisses!!!Love your haiku!:-)
Oh...wisteria...how lucky you are to grow it in your garden. I've no luck with it. I bet it's well established and beautiful when in bloom. I enjoyed your poem....are you tired of summer yet? I can't wait for autumn...
Really lovely.It's 108 and very dry here in Phoenix today - especially enjoyed the thought of the drought being saturated.
oh i could never survive a drought of kisses...
pretty much what I've been saying all this long, hot summer...
When I'm out tomorrow...I'm buying myself a watering can! Great words!
Just the right thought for a summer day.
Lovely words, and photo.
Nice....the foliage seems to be grateful in this photo!!
magical words,everything is in perfect gracewith your words hit this blogging place.
Love the sounds.
Reminds me of here!
Nice. Succulents were never so, well, succulent.
I love it!
So simple, yet layered.
As I walked over a bridge on the campus of the University of New Mexico today, I exclaimed...Wisteria..in bloom, in August! It never happens here, but today we had a deluge leaving the streets submerged and hail stones pelting Old Town. Synchronicity.
simply lovely...love the succulent kisses! Wow!
Much Ado About Everything...there's a double meaning there.
I love succulent kisses...
Lovely. Seems like everyone has a drought.
Yeah! an old time haiku (5,7,5) beautiful. the words held worlds and summers of imagery.
A little jewel with layers of timelessness!
Willow,Hi on can ku.No wast here. ;)rel
Oh Gorgeous writing Willow, love all the sss's in this succulent Haiku!
Here's to a sexy, sultry summer, Willow!
Beautiful, Willow! You should put some of your great photos on zazzle cards--you'd sell thousands of 'em! they're beautiful.
I'm in love...with anybody!!Who can resist this seduction?
Really nice, and so simple!
Okay: I enjoyed the kisses too. Very good. Thank you.
Ooohh, this was too delicious!
These words evoke a tryst - meet me in the kitchen by the light of the moon... Love Tattered's idea of the hunky new gardner. Heh.
Sweet and sensual words.
Oh very nice indeed.
The imagery is so visceral ... beautifully written.
Beautiful photo and words. Your last post was very interesting.

woo..could mean so many things. and would fit nicely into a longer multi-seasonal effort
Love it, Willow.
Good one, Willow! Says so much with so few words.
Absolutely love the imagery!
What a wet, juicy poem for a dry summer afternoon. Love the picture, too--not sure which I enjoyed more...
A lovely haiku, Willow. I have felt this drought.
Very beautiful words Willow.
Yes. Please! And send some cool winds this way as well.
I love this. Simple and poetic. Beautiful expression there.
Awesome! The picture and words are so beautiful. A perfect summer poem. I get excited by a beautiful haiku. Mine suck, so I'm always impressed when I see a good one. I love how you weave the sensual and natural worlds.
Oh wow. Wow.
You, my dear, are an artist. I've always loved your poetry.Apologies for my absence. Things got a little out-of-hand around here and then I went away. Away!It was good to get away but I see I have much catching up to do.
So simple and yet so profound!
Awesome! Droughts are no fun.
Simplicity is often best. This image was created for your words.
Your header & this post..... I love it!!! Agneta
I love how your magpie tales are spreading like gossip.
I love that poem. Compact, tiny, all you need to wrap that wish!
I didn't even realize at first, it wasa haiku. Oh my!
Best haiku since yon time! Every attribute of poetry squeezed into 17 syllables. A model for all wannabees.
Exquisite imagery, prayer to the weather gods.(I read "Wandering water can" *smile*)
Lonely and seductive at the same time. Brilliantly creative!
wonderful words all in one breath!
beautiful inspiring picture and lovely haiku.
Love the succulent kisses....beautiful words (love that word)must remember it ....have a wonderful Kincaid Fest
Succint and very senuous, really good combination. Wonderful haiku.Elizabeth
Oh I love how summer opens the door to your earthy and sensual haiku.
a hydrating Magpie! :)
Me too went haiku way :-)very profound Willow !
This made me wish Mary Chapin Carpenter could set this one to music...remember her "Passionate Kisses"...But your lines are so few and far more commanding. How could any man resist!!"Shouldn't I have succulent kisses?""Humm, sounds more like Canadian singer Diana Krall! Love it!
What a juicy chomp you took with so few words! Bravo.- Dina
hot hot hot
Oh, very romantic and hot, Willow.
The gentle fall of imagery is gorgeous. One of my faves of yours!
Sultry, seductive, sad, pleading, urgent. All these evoked by those 3 lines...BRILLIANT!!!
I LOVE THIS!
what an awesome shot.you are all ARTIST!xxx
Perfect image, lovely words.
hmm, well i thought I had commented on this before but apparently now. A truly beautiful longing poem here, Willow. simple and pristine.
