Tangled

strangers in the room
lured by passions dance, hold tight;
pressing the future

Just Karma 178 for September 2016 wp

Just Karma 178
Becoming the Butterfly
(mini haibun)

In choosing to stay away from competition with others
true wishes sometimes get derailed and put on the
back burners of our thoughts for a very long time.

a planted seed will
eventually grow when
nurtured lovingly

When we finally are able to grasp the choices that
Make us happy often support seems far and nil.

passion will erupt
into a most beautiful
flower if allowed

Value all of your attributes, even when, and especially
when you are facing your reflection in the mirror.

Flush?

heat
in the
face rises – blood
courage, passion and sin;
scarlet

scarlet
flower, foretells the weather,
emotional storms though

different

…scarlet and other bright shades of red are the colors most associated with courage,
force, passion, heat, and joy..[and] also often associated with immorality and sin.
… An early recorded use of scarlet as a color name in the English language dates to 1250.

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Anagallis_arvensis = scarlet pimpernel
or poor man’s weatherglass, from its habit of closing its flowers in dull weather.
