  1. These brilliant and full red flowers do look like kisses from the heart. Red is a dynamic, passionate color, life-giving, flaming and one of rebecca’s favorites. It is a lovely tribute to her one year anniversary.

  2. Hi Uma,
    I left a comment. I am not sure if you got it. I love this image. The full red flowers do look like kisses from the heart and red is a passionate, dynamic and life-giving color that is much loved by rebecca. It is a wonderful tribute on her one year anniversary of Haiku My Heart.

  3. Unfamiliar with this flower, I looked on Wikipedia: In India it is known as Gulmohar (Hindi and Urdu -‘Gul’ means flower and ‘Mohr’ is ‘peacock’, thus the name suggests a spectacular show of color, like the extraordinary colors of a peacock’s tail. Thanks for your beautiful art and haiku–and the opportunity to learn of something new.

  4. I am not familiar with this flowering tree where I live. Your artistry brings out the vibrancy of the red blossoms. I love the haiku, a tribute to recuerda mi corazon and her gift to us with Friday Haiku. Very nice.


  5. Thanks, Fran for looking this up — like many others from the U.S., I was not familiar with this plant. Many others have already said things I was thinking, so I’ll just add my thanks.

  6. dear one,
    i am finally home and making my way around the offerings of haiku. thank you dear friend for being here with your most expressive heart. i love the thoughtfulness that always accompanies everything about you!
