Bell Flowers - haiku - November 9, 2014

purple bell flower
blooming in the summer fields
- silent beauties

(c) G.s.k. '14

Here are some other haiku which Chèvrefueille shared in his poss which feature the bell flower

raiun ni kikyo murasaki yurchajimu

under thunderheads
the purple of the bellflowers
begins to sway

in a pot, Chinese
bellflowers begin to fade -
misty rain

Chinese bellflowers
bloom in mother's color
dark violet

purple bellflowers
swaying in the breeze -
the sound of water

And this is our host's haiku:

fragile beauty
purple flowers like paper
Chinese bellflower

  1. I'm so glad you called it purple too -- wasn't sure if I should call it purple, blue, violet ---
    A very sweet haiku :)

    1. well now Yosakura, Keniko and Chèvrefeuille said purple ... who am I to go against the majority? ;-)

  2. This comment has been removed by the author.

  3. I suspect that, despite their ostensible silence, the bellflowers have a tune or two in them.

  4. It's like those mental challenges where the word is printed in blue but the word itself says, "purple" -- if you know what I mean? ;)

    1. Ah yes, I do know what you mean ... when I was looking at the photo, I too said "blue bells" but blue bells are another flower ... so I let myself be led by the democratic process and said purple.

  5. Wonderful haiku Georgia ... silent beauties ... nice line

  6. Lovely, cara, they really are silent beauties!

  7. Maybe you are right.. they might be silent.


harmonious words ... like crystal clear water ... pure ectasy
