Hope


on a wintry day,
summer blooms in my heart-
the radiance of hope


Can you tell what this image is in black and white and gradually revealed in color?


It's a red geranium that bloomed this week! I have a flower pot in my home next to a sunny spot by the window, and suddenly geraniums started to bloom again. It's been unusually warm, like an Indian summer, so this lovely flower wants to keep on giving. It's so heart-warming to have a little bit more of summer, before it starts to get really cold! December is going to be an exciting month, with lots of inspirational and holiday season related posts on my blog. Please join me as we celebrate a wonderful new season! 

Sharing my haiku and photos with these lovely sites:
