calluna heather

I walked along the river bank near my home this morning. The sun was shining and the air was fresh and sweet. I thought about the coming Summer and the wonderful scents from the heather floating on the breeze. This memory gave me the inspiration to write this haiku in celebration of calluna.


Rich purple flowers

blanket the hills in Summer

sweet heavenly scent
