trumpet

I wrote this a while ago. A recent comment from floots has reminded me of it.

Loud color yet muffled tone...nice contradiction and clear imagery, Bill.

Hi Bill. Thanks for visiting me, and leading me over here. Great stuff. Need to browse a while.

Thanks for sharing your 'trumpet' - I immediatly thought of a recent haiku by John (http://zenspeug.blogspot.com/) - on Feb 28th - more daffodil trumpets. Interesting how our ideas collide but fly in different directions too.

It's that time, Jem. As I mentioned, it was floots's comment that he was taking pictures of daffodils that led me to take this one out of the file.
