purple boxing glove
revel in fleeting glory
autumn will triumph
The concept of this piece came to me immediately, but I sat on it a month before I fleshed it out into a proper haiku.

Don't give me credit or comment for the photo please! The excellent macro is from my friend *AnnieCatBlue and praise for the photo should be given to her.

A delightful haiku, aiming to present a slightly bittersweet portrait - the overshadowing of the beautiful flower by the coming of Autumn. The phrase revel in fleeting glory seems like an oxymoron, how can one revel in something so fleeting? - but that's fitting as an ode to the beauty of the display.

Regards,

James

Conveying the idea in the phrase you pointed out was something I struggled with for a while. That's the wonderful challenge in haiku, and meeting that challenge successfully was very rewarding. That's amongst the many reasons I chose to focus on haiku as my medium of expression.

Thank you for the excellent analysis and comment.
