CARPE DIEM TOKUBETSUDESU #47: Peony & Ants


CARPE DIEM TOKUBETSUDESU #47 flowers


Inspiration by Kobayashi Issa:
an old man’s world… 
flowers of snow on bare trees   
spring’s blossoms




ants feed on nectar  
peony blossom unfurled
 nature entrances me

Haiku Quote:
“Science without love will destroy the earth.”

Ants onpeony buds: a classic the world over.
Acutely observed in words and image.

oh I love this. My mother puts grape jelly on her peonies to attract the ants which will, in turn, open the buds.

Love your haiku. For the first time I'm growing Peonies and I did notice ants everywhere. Facinating!

Norma Ruttan said...

now you know the reason for the ants. the peony is Indiana's state flower.
