Haiku my heart

end of summer

beauty gone to seed 
food for migratory birds
next years abundance


  1. very nice. I like the idea of abundance of food and yes, nature!

  2. Is that the end of a sunflower? What an interesting picture. Awesome Haiku. I know those birdies love you. They remember those things.

  3. This is a gorgeous photo and I love the idea of beauty gone to seed!! Thank you!

  4. I love that luscious sunflower seed head! How heavy it is, hanging down like that! I have some squirrels in my yard that would love to get their hands (paws?) on that. I can't plant big sunflowers anymore because the squirrels destroy them before they go to seed.

  5. Me too! Those damn squirrels ruin everything! They take all of the apples and peaches too...they don't even eat them, just rip them all off the tree before they are even ripe. They just don't have any predators anymore...suburbia took away all the owls and hawks.

    Oh. Gemma. great picture and haiku! At first glance the sunflower head looked like a basket! ♥ ♥ ♥

  6. I love sunflowers. The birds must love you. I must remember to planet some sunflowers next Spring. Do yours self seed?
