Haiku by old pajamas



a lone iris
in the barn trough
perfect memory

My friend old pajamas wrote this Haiku in response to my photo.

Recently some of his poems were published in a journal by moon set publishers. I can't find a link to these publishers unfortunately. A few years back my friend asked me not to blog about him. When I spoke of this a few days ago, he said I could blog about him. So I will post some of his poetry here from time to time.

For more Haiku and other poems see Chewy's blog on Tuesdays.

This photo is just stunning. That violet against the red of the barn, together with the grass and stone. Perfect.

No wonder my ears were burning. I try to post my Haikus on Tuesdays, but sometimes I get sidetracked to other things. Click on "haiku" in my sidebar to get a listing of all of them.

Nice Haiku by old pajamas, it fits your photo perfectly.

I love your friend's haiku.
I love his name even more.
Old Pajamas.
Somehow you know that he must be a warm, comfortable friend.
Simply gorgeous photo Suki,,,perfect composition and palette.

A lovely haiku by old pajamas. Someone with such a moniker must be a born poet.

And that photograph is the perfect complement to old pajama's words, Suki.

Suki, I think old pajamas is quite a find...I am sure he feels as though you are also quite a find! I know I do! I love your photography and this iris (one of my favorite flowers) is not an exception. When you pair these two pieces of art, they are a real treasure! The two of you make quite a team!

Thanks for joining me in the surprise over at my blog today! I really appreciate your support so much! I think you have the plan down just right.

Hugs to you, Dear Suki!
