Three haiku

Code orange rain warning.

It's a black and white matter,

why would we lie?

[Click to see orange!]

Through prismatic rain

Richard of York gave battle...

found gold at the end
~

Molly on the shore,

a salty sea dog, really

feeling much better!

the rainbow is stunning, the way its colours reflect the colours in the landscape

Three lovely things. Three! Must you? Must you really? It just makes the rest of us look bad you know...

Dick said...

I particularly like that first one, Lucy. Haiku + humour. And the rainbow is astonishing.

What a nice job you did. Took a while for m to clue in to the fact that it was haiku because I didn't read the title but rather looked at the pictures and went from there. Silly me. And lovely pictures.

Like that triptych...

And I'd like the middle one for a book cover (mine, of course!)

Loved all the photos, but when I got to Molly...! Wow, what a great shot!

Lucy said...

Thanks all.

The rainbow really was that vivid, though a little tinkering was required to make it look not more so than life but more like it really was, it was one of those moments of extraordinary rainy evening light, not many of the pictures I tried to take did it justice. I suppose if I were clever with Photoshop I could swipe out the power lines, but I don't know...

Glad to get a vote for the cows, Dick!

I'm happy to hear that Molly is healthy and fiesty again.

I like your black and whites, but that gold is extraordinary.

Sheila said...

I love the cow haiku!

And all the photos!

And don't know enough about Richard of York to say much, but very glad that Molly is better!

Zephyr said...

i love the humor/twist in the first one!!

Gorgeous rainbow capture!!!!

i'm so, so happy that Molly is feeling better!!!

Lucy said...

Bee, welcome back!
Sheila - Richard of York gave battle in vain - ROYGBIV - is the mnemonic we were often taught to remember the colours of the rainbow. I always found them perfectly easy to remember anyway, but the phrase had a certain poetic curiosity value!
Zephyr - thank you!
