Visit to the Japanese Garden

I went to Seattle’s Japanese Garden yesterday. It’s a beautiful place, and I thought that there is no better way to celebrate a summer day there than writing some haiku poetry about the natural beauty of this serene gem.



Flitting blue wings glide
Dragonfly dancing over
Lotuses smiling

Serene shade’s cool
Neighbors sunlit pond’s vibrance
Gold fishes swimming

Pink bush exploding
Bright bountiful blooms beckoning
Passersby rejoice

Sunlight’s shimmering
Water ripples against stones
Still turtle basking

Ducks and large koi
A frolicking feast by the bridge
Bread dropping from hands

Wind’s rustling soft leaves
Summer breeze’ gentle embrace
Birds sing in branches

Juniper leaning
Diagonal line at shore
Water mirrors face
