If you are searching
for a rose that is true blue
it has no season

the pigment needed
is not found in any rose
will lavender do?


you must bend down low
on humbled knee to catch scent
of an angel face

There is society where none intrudes, by the deep sea, and music in its roar.

Hey, neat Jamie!   one question.. is this one poem? Or seperate haiku? I think perhaps, it could work either way, not sure they seem terribly related though.. (well, or wondurfully, lol.. whichever)  
Nice read..

Luv, Lynne

SEA-- I am glad you did!

Martie-- You are most welcome,, and thank you!

Yu Lan-- They are all related in that they are about roses----The second Haiku is a continuation of the first, and makes no sense without it..(the pigmentation for a blue rose not existing..hence the offer of lavender)-- .. the angel face rose is very low growing, thus you have to bend way down to enjoy it's fragrance.... thanks for reading and asking..

I LOVE the title...

not sure about the ? at the end of the second one...I don't know..mind you it adds rhythm if the poem is read as one whole thing as opposed to a collection of haiku.

But like I said - you are very good at these dear...

Jamie~
Angel Face is among my favorite's because of the heavenly scent.
I've only to walk into the garden to find the beauty and fragrance of this rose.
You've done a wonderful job here.
