Poetry Friday--Haiku from Thailand

My family and I spent the summer in Thailand visiting my parents and reminiscing about my time spent there as a child. One thing I never noticed as a child was how beautiful the plants are there. I guess until I started to plant my own garden, plants weren't all that important to me. I am in the middle of writing poetry based on experiences there, but right now we'll start with some haiku inspired by the beautiful flora there.

lone lotus tiptoes

out of the water, to the sky

a splash of pink
