Haiku 77

Lucky Lavender

Cast your spell as I walk by

Lingering perfume



I bought a new lavender bush, since my old one suddenly died. This one seems to be a different variety; chunky and not as refined. Hopefully its ruggedness will help it do better.

Lucky Lavender 2


post script: I have written a few posts on lavender and hesitated to do another, but I liked the photo I’d managed to capture in the sunlight, so thought, “Why not?” The little haiku came after, but I’m quite chuffed with it. I doubt anyone will notice, except perhaps Scooj, who counts the syllables!Β 

Also, I’d chosen the title Lucky Lavender and then realised this is my 77th haiku. 7 is my lucky number. Serendipitous or what?

    A perfect haiku for a perfect plant. A few years ago I fantasised about starting a lavender farm, but it remained a fantasy. Syllable count all good.

      I’ve never seen a lavender farm, tho some old wine estates have a lavender garden or two,

    I grow LOTS of lavender and love to brush through it stirring up the scent when I’m messing around. I don’t do it anymore, but used to make a whole array of balms, linen water, bath salts, etc. with lavender … maybe I need to crank a few things back up.
