    Languid Lavender

    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.
