Scarlet blooms against the sky
Heat like hornet stings

Love the pic and the Haiku. Love Hugs and Blessings
Is it still raining in your neck of the woods. It has stopped here and getting hotter every day. I like it though. Hope you have a good week. connie from Texas

So beautiful and glorious colors! I love the images your haiku creates -- and especially the line "scarlet blooms against the sky".

Even in my cold office I could feel the heat of the poem. So evocative!

Oh I love those bright hot pink flowers in the photo and the haiku fits the image so well. Hope you're staying cool this summer, Sioux.
I'm not familiar with Geocache and Letterboxing - but I'm intrigued, so I'm off to find out more about it - from what I can tell so far, it sounds like fun sleuthing...Enjoy!

Lovely haiku!

The previous one reminds me of my trip to Minnesota, seeing things that are no longer what they were when we were young. Memory lane can be a sad journey sometimes.
I left Florida because of the intense heat; I found your hornet sting description perfect.
