So very beautiful with a hint of sadness!
beautiful and sad! I still keep have the rose my love gave me, well she did not give it as a show of love but as a show of friendship. I still have it. Yes. eyes well up on sight of such flowers. I loved this haiku. Thank you.
I don't find sadness there because I am sure love has not withered away...because it doesn't..rather it can't.. and lily can't stay forever but one can go back in the moment to enjoy the fragrance..http://rameshsood.blogspot.in/2013/04/she-holds-lily.htmlRS
So, beautiful and romantic haiku
A mystery associated with the haiku, mixed feelings and excitement!!Well said!!
I can't help but wonder why it took a cleaning to bring the lily to light...In Her Arms a Lily
I like the image of the withered lily. Alice
