Nature’s Seduction

Hostas unfurl leafy tongues,
lick the dew,
quench their thirst.

Submitted to Jingle’s Poetry Potluck where this week’s theme is Nature:


I will be offline this week but will do my best to visit when I return.

    What a vivid poem, Victoria!

    I hope your are off-line to do something fun ….

    Thanks for your visits and for the piece for “Dispatch.” I did use it and gave you credit with link. If you didn’t get a chance to check it out, you my try to. The interview with Anna Montgomery is most interesting. Think you will like it.

    Take care, Victoria!

    So nice, Victoria! It takes a special look to perceive this kind of seduction…


  11. Very nice Haiku 🙂


  12. Hostas do look like they have tongues! Nice observation, Liv. My sister’s partner is obsessed with hostas, knows just about every variety… and they are all lovely – and thirsty! Amy

    That is so very sweet, Victoria! And so apt.

    Tangible and evocative … well done!

    Thanks, Victoria, for your comment on my poem about Amy Winehouse. I didn’t follow her music, either, just the sad trail of misadventures. I think that under all of that weird get-up, she was an extraordinarily beautiful young woman with a God-given talent. Clearly her family loved her and are devastated by the loss.

    I was interested to read about your religious background — always nice to meet another Catholic poet! 🙂


  15. Sheila Moore says:

    ha…they do look like tongues – I love haiku and this one is one of my favorites 🙂


  16. Jingle says:

    short and powerful.

    You have captured the very essence of that picture with excellent word choice.


  18. Bodhirose says:

    I love those tropical hostas–beautiful, Victoria.


  19. very nice. I don’t usually like Haiku but this is quite good.
