Close Up ... for One Deep Breath

Lotus Seed Pod, Joan Z. Rough © 2006

This weeks prompt for One Deep Breath is "close up."


asleep within
swollen spheres
seeds of life

slender roots expand
in water’s fecund flow
goldfish spawning

in summer sun
lotus blossoms flourish
cycle unbroken

That photo is absolutely astounding, and so is the haiku. I agree with Susan, every line is a stunner. And the alliteration is marvelous.

Superb!
