Calla Lilies And Haiku

An Odd Coupling, Perhaps Not

Flowers on the street
The Callas came home with me
And lasted for weeks

Bouquet of calla lilies.

Glowing white blossoms
Arranged with the utmost love
Sparkling in the sun

Calla lilies as the begin to age.

The beauty of age
Never begins to grow old
Simple truth always

Drying calla lily still life.

Looking here close up
Yes alike, yet different
Who would have thought it

Drying calla lilies close up.

Now even closer
An intimate portrait of
Aging in darkness

Calla Lily still life against a steel door.

I say, ‘Line em up’
For a group portrait on steel
Yes, a lovely dance

Looking down on drying lilies.

A bundle of light
Glowing in the sunshine now
Age has no part here

Thanks for reading, and looking. I welcome your comments, always.
