Languid lavender
dances slowly in the breeze―
Honeybees rejoice

My interest in poetry comes from my mother, who was an avid reader and would often cite lines from her favorite poems. I consider myself to be an amateur haiku poet and welcome the opportunity each year to submit to the Poster Project.

This haiku reflects a lovely day spent with family at the lavender festival in Skaneateles, NY. Memories conjured up multi-sensory images of a sunny day spent calmly gathering fragrant flowers on a beautiful hillside alongside happy bees!

I sincerely enjoy the haiku poetic form and its ability to succinctly communicate special moments and feelings.
