Charms of the Hibiscus

Extending its charms
Hibiscus in varied hues
Regal in stature

Softness in beauty
Admiration for a day
Dignified exit

  2. The time it is around, dignifies when it decides to make the exit sound.

  3. Oh I just had to comment on this post. I'm sipping coffee in my yard, where I can see my large hibiscus plant. No flowers today, they bloom late here. Anyway, love your haikus about my favorite flower.

  4. I think hibiscus are among the most beautiful flowers that live. When I see them, I always think of Hawaii.

  5. A Chinese rose by any other name.... Have no idea why Shakespeare just popped into my mind. Lovely words for a lovely flower.
