Impressionist photography, dancing with dandelions and haiku

                                    rainbow dandelion, 
                           even on the dullest day
                           still strength to sparkle
                          Janet Keen Rotorua

                                      lone dandelion left
                         the wind swept others away
                         what made you stay put?
                                                                        Janet Keen, Rotorua

                                                              fly into the void
                                         rest your head amid the fluff
                                         dandelion cushion 
                                           Janet Keen NZ

                                the witches spell
                                 just a fraction now
                                of calming dandelion tea
                                endless dream of me
                                                                             Janet Keen, NZ

                                                        kissing dandelions
                                     as opposed to dead prickles
                                     less pain on the mouth
                                                                                       Janet Keen, NZ

                                                  rose petal finger
                                                 dandelion casts a shadow
                                                her needs always left                                                                                        Janet Keen, NZ 

                                                                                 gaps between petals
                                                     look like paths to unknown lands
                                                    take a risk and leap
                                                                       Janet Keen, Rotorua NZ

                                                           the red of her lips
                                       sweet smelling as fresh roses
                                       smudge on his collar
                                                       Janet Keen, Rotorua, NZ

                                                                    Minimalism, so fashionably sophisticated.
                                                                    stifled bloom of gloom
                                             simplicity so snoring
                                             yawn yourself awake 
                                                       Janet Keen, Rotorua, NZ

reaching out towards the mist
wishing to connect

impossible to avoid

closeness makes you cry

after being with him
take notice of how you feel
soft touch may deceive

misty dandelions
a shroud of indiscretions 
taken to his grave

Mixed Messages
 his tapered fingers
 brush hair away from her eyes
intentions unclear


                                                gladly choose your path 
                                                trust the forks that you may take
                                                every stem has hairs
                                                             Janet Keen, NZ

                                                                                 Geese at the lakefront, I love them
                                                                             reputations wrong
                                                     the more often you meet them 
                                                     the softer they are

                                                         hail falls hard now
                                       bending dandelions to mud
                                       springing  up when past
                                                                    Janet Keen, Rotorua, NZ

                                   when the storm subsides
                                light shines through the dandelions 
                                  couples reconcile
                                     Janet Keen, Rotorua NZ

                                            the fight exploded
                                           suddenly one windy night
                                            now they are alone
                                                                                             Janet Keen, Rotorua NZ

                                               just because it's dawn
                                              doesn't mean to say your words
                                                have been swept away
                                                     Janet Keen Rotorua, NZ
                                                                           leaving town
                                                                      yearning  to connect
                                             one last time before he goes 
                                              allum dandlion
                                                                                              Janet keen

                                                    leaving forever   
                                     wispy marks left on my soul
                                     in my heart you're mine                                                            
                                               Janet Keen, NZ

                                                 don't think that because
                                                 for now you have departed
                                               light has left my life
                                                         Janet Keen, New Zealand
