with Scott Mitchell
The words just capture the moment.
Thanks! It was my first Haiku. I analyzed some on the site of LScott Poetry until I felt ready to write one and it just came out as what you see here :)
For more (and better) Haikus, as well as awesome poetry, visit her at:
Yes, her poetry is deep and amazing!
Scott, this is absolutely beautiful…your words, the perfect image and so many meanings in these few syllables; an awesome first haiku and I can’t wait for more from you! And you completely caught me off guard by paying me this HUGE complement! Thank you so much! I am no expert on any type of writing, let alone haiku, and to think you were analyzing mine? Wow, I’m stunned and honored…big hugs and thank you again, my friend! xx
Hey Lauren, it’s comment catch up day for me :D
Thanks for always being here commenting and for sharing your own amazing work/heart always on your blog. Stay blessed forever
How do I begin to apologise for my silence…. ‘Don’t think I have done much reading in a while either :(
I have A LOT of catching up to do….. but I guess this is a start :)
How have you been you? :)
Hey, life happens and we get busy. Very understandable and the same happens to me too often :)
I’m doing very well, thanks. I hope you are well and always hope to see you writing again!
The image..!!!. Is a poem/story on its own… :)
Thanks Maureen! I did spend a great deal of time trying to find the perfect image to match what I was saying. I found almost the perfect one and edited it :)
‘Glaze of spring fragrance …’ how lovely
Thank you Polly. I’m not sure if anybody ever writes romantic haikus, but the secret in this one is that it’s slightly romantic.
I just think it’s beautiful and the photo is so pretty too – I love it that we’re not sure if anybody writes romantic haikus, why not? I say. Have you seen the Spanish form called Shadorma? Stanza’s of six lines (sestets) with no set rhyme scheme. Thought to be a variation of haiku, which is clear from its syllable pattern – you’re good at this Scott, take a look at the Shadorma :)
Beautiful :-) Thank you for sharing
Thanks Crystal! I appreciate your visit and comment!

I couldn’t help sharing this beautiful spring haiku from one of the best poets I’ve met on WP. Scott has a romantic heart and a gentle spirit and I’m honored to “know” him! :)
Thanks again Lauren!
I really, really love this photo. :D
Thank you! Hey I’m following you now on tumblr. I just have to get more familiar with tumblr. It’s a little different than what I’m used to but I’ll get it figured out :)
Delicate, lovely picture. Thanks for visiting my blog too.
Thank you Libby!
Challenge you to a Lucky 7 MEME Challenge
Sorry, it took time for me to pass on. Have fun. :)
Hey thanks! Hmm a challenge. I rarely resist a challenge :D
I’ll have to check that out and hopefully have time soon to fulfill it
Good to know you are a sport! Take your time Scott. :)
lovely haiku…and stunning photo (that light!!!)
Thank you Michelle. I found that photo on bigstock.com. When I need a different kind of pic for something published I love bigstock because of the selection and it’s only a few dollars.
Lovely! I’m glad Lauren re-blogged it. :)
Thank you for the visit Betty. I love Lauren’s writing and was honored to have her repost

Thank you sooo much Shian! You know you’re one of my favorites and being awarded from you is the utmost compliment and inspiration for me to continue on my blog. I appreciate you! God bless always my friend
I so so so so SO can’t do haiku!! I admire you for it. But that picture. It is fantastic. I am just amazed on wordpress what I’m being exposed to. about once a week I go cruising sites & tags, & see some awesome stuff. Love the photography that goes on. This though, was like a very neat package :)
VodkaWasMyMuse.wordpress.com / WordsFallFromMyEyes.wordpress.com
Thanks! It was my first haiku. When I see your writing I really believe you could do haikus. Seriously :)
Excellent first attempt, Scott! I really love it.
wonderful!! the poem and the image!
Thanks Mimo. I wish I had your talent so I could have my own library of amazing photos that I took myself so I could use them :)
Such overwhelming beauty, Scott! :D
Hi Scott, I learnt of your blog from GG’s Blog: http://gagangupt16.wordpress.com/. You are in his, “About Some of the Fantastic blogs I have came across…” He wasn’t kidding. My, this poem is beautiful! I’m looking forward to reading more of your poetry.
Happy Writing :)

What an awesome haiku!
The last line evoked so many thoughts with me (I guess that’s why the site is called ‘evoking the deep’). The wings could be golden, platinum, magical – instead they are bronzed. I wonder if it’s a literal image or if the poem hints of greater things to come from the newly emerged creature familiarizing itself with the world.
For me it meant a few things. Even literally bronzed :)
Sorry for my late reply as I’ve had a difficult few months. Thanks so so much for your comment!
Ah… no words for this!!
Now am wondering why I had taken so long to be here.
And I take a deep breath of appreciation again. Thanks so much silentfingers!
