Bouquet of flowers –
Bought for art – not love –
Thank goodness since they’re plastic!

Notes to this poem…
The picture of what inspired this haiku is below. It’s pretty much as the haiku says. I feel I have to add that “sadly” was not necessary, as much as it might seem to be that I didn’t buy flowers for love when there isn’t a love in my life. If only you knew the art these flowers would inspired, you would not think “sadly” were necessary, either!
The H-series poems comprise of haiku composed while I was not engaged in some activity during which I frequently composed poetry. That is why these are called the Inactive Haiku collection.
