Day 29 of NaHaiWriMo

bouquet of carnations,carnation flower,pink and white carnation,still life,

the last flower picked
joy replaced by realization
she is now owned

If you are unsure of the rules of haiku and would like to learn more, then go to my What is Haiku? page. Also, stop by the Facebook page where most of us poets meet to get a prompt and share our work. There is still time to click Like on people’s posts to encourage them in their writing. Thanks for clicking like on all of my posts this month!!

Today’s prompt was “zyzzyva” (a genus of tropical American palm weevil, the last word in many English dictionaries, and the last word in NaHaiWriMo’s two-year odyssey through 790 daily alphabetical writing prompts using all the letters of the English alphabet). This haiku is about being late in a season. It is also about wanting something until you get it.
