Peonies: a haiku 

The prompt for this poem was, for me, a little vague; of course I can barely imagine the time and effort our host at CDHK invests almost daily so this is not meant to be critical. So, I took the thoughts that the example haiku gave me and “wrote” with them!

spring rains green the grass
dandelions invading 
peonies will soon bloom

Many thanks to Chèvrefeuille for the work he does that spawns so much creativity!


  1. I like this one very much Greg – it’s thought-provoking, open for the reader to interpret. Colourful. Fragile peonies are coming, but.. Very nice indeed. And the first line for me wonderfully expresses faith – it really does, though the spring rains bring the dandelions as well as peonies…

    1. Thank you for the kind words. My haiku are like a box of chocolates: you never know what you’re gonna get! LOL

      All kidding aside, the comments and suggestions are always appreciated. Have a blessed weekend 🙂


  2. This is a haiku which triggers the reader …. it gives me the space to interprete it in my own way and that’s what haiku is meant to be. Haiku is a dance between the poet and the reader and the two of them are creating the choreography … a life with haiku, living haiku …. very nice haiku Greg. Thank you for sharing.
