Thursday, June 1


In a photo I keep
the plump froth of peony blooms
in life, now compost.

Buson said it better:

'Peony having scattered,
two or three petals
lie on one another'.

Anyway, many thanks to my friend Amy F. for her generous gift of peonies, whose beauty truly seems beyond description in either word or paint. The camera maybe gets the closest. Just missing the damp feel of the petals and the intense sweet spicy scent.
