In the windy season
of May, pollen falls, lifts, soars.
Poppies propogate.

Fran aka Redondowriter

Ah, nothing like the California poppy to be knee deep in holy. Have you ever visited the poppy preserve in Lancaster, CA in the spring? It is amazing! I can't believe I'm not last in sharing this time but as I went to put the computer to bed, I checked your site and voila! You had the haiku invite up early. Have a beautiful weekend.

Nature and spirituality perfectly handled.


Knee deep in holy... I just LOVE that expression! You are a flower in my garden, Rebecca :o) Happy Weekend ((HUGS))


Wonderful, beautiful haiku Rebecca! You have me too with the last expression - marvelous!


Hi Rebecca! Love everything about this post! The vibrant poppies...and the term "knee deep in holy.". Lyrical. Beautiful.


Oh!!! The color of the poppies is just breathtaking. Wonderful! Indeed, "knee deep in holy!" Thank you!!!!!

I have returned to Fridays,
dripping with golden goodness!


Love all of the rogue flowers that bloom here on Fridays. XXX
and LOVE your beautiful poppies and haiku.


We are suddenly plunged back into cold...tender young things I planted, perhaps too early.

Your heron visitation still takes my breath away.


Oh what a gorgeous colour those poppies are. Beautiful words accompany them, and I am so glad I followed the link to the herons.

Not only your haiku and pictures even the gifts of beautiful feelings everyone shares here uplift my heart as I experienced while visiting Fran's Haiku on Butterflies..

My heart flies
goes up, up and up;
freedom , that!!!!


California Poppies are synonomous with spring...and holy for sure! Beautiful!

"Knee deep in holy" is wow! Orange is my favourite colour and since I'm from California, the poppy is one of my favourites.

Beautiful photo of our western poppies!
Your poem puts a lovely light on pollen which at times completely covers everything in a coat of lime green sneezy dust :o)
Have a wonderful weekend.
Always, Queenie
