the blossom finds reassurance

of its plenitude

    This is such a thoughtful poem, Somali. In our reflections, or when we see our reflections, we see our true selves. We see ourselves staring back at ourselves whether we like it or not. If we don’t like something about ourselves that we see staring back at us, then we might be inspired to change and be a better person. Beautiful shot to go along with your haiku 🙂

      Thank you Mabel. Yes, you’re right, sometimes our reflection gives us a sense of self validation.

    Beautiful poetry about the daisy which is quite a strong and hardy flower. Did you know that daisies live in all parts of the world except for Antarctica? Strength and beauty; you’ve chosen the perfect flower for your lovely haiku!

    A very positive haiku with a beautiful click! Our reflections indeed are introspective. They give us a true image of our worth. They smash images of false grandeur or self-pity and prime us for the battle ahead. Loved it!

    This is indeed pretty profound. Many times in life the solution to problems in life lies hidden in our reflections provided we keep doing and doing it sincerely. It is such an important aspect of our daily engagement, when we end the day and when sit in isolation or while going to sleep, it is a good time to spare few minutes of the day’s proceeding and take a step forward for tomorrow…and what better way to describe its significance then through the power of flower and which blossoms one day and next day it has take a turn and fold itself…
    Hope you are having lovely Sunday.

      Thanks for the lovely comment Nihar. I’m sorry for the late reply. Yes indeed a few moments of reflection helps to roundup the day and may also at times help a person to know his/ her own worth/ completeness.

        Not at all Somali, we all get stuck in something or other and it is such an integral part of journey as blogger, we have keep so many things in sync to get our consistency in engagement, never easy and it happens few times where we just have wait for the time to come to get back and get going once again…this is exactly we do when we sit back and reflect the day’s work and how we would have made it little more productive and little more interesting.
        The deep thoughts and deeper meaning gets truly reflected in each of your lovely Haiku…
        take care!!!
        😀
