Marien,
I like all the different shade of blue the presentation of this haiku. You have used a strong metaphor and personification in this to describe the opening of the beautiful lotus flower. The center almost looks like a faceted diamond.
Congrats on placing second in the contest.
Kee writing and stay healthy
Joan

This is a beautifully written haiku. A beautiful overall presentation background and font. Beautiful photo to compliment your words as well. Nicely done.

The first two lines of this lovely poem flow and connect well. The last
line says is all! The read of this poem was relaxing and beautiful. I
really enjoyed how the last line wakes up with sunrise as the author states! The artwork is awesome and compliments these words well.

    Thanks for the review, and for admiring the BLUEtiful in the poem. You got exactly the image I was trying to convey: simplicity, synchronicity and waking up with the sunrise. Glad you enjoyed the poem and I appreciate your kind words.

Mari,

Good idea (lotus flower) for this contest entry. Your color choices really elevated your verse. 'Yawning river mouth' was certainly a most interesting phrase choice to awaken the start of the day and its morning sun.

Mark

P.S. Is an initial cap necessary for this post?

    Hi Mark,
    Thanks for your review, but most of all for your appreciation of the allegory of the mouth of the river as an awakening and my appeal to the senses for the opening of a new day. I trust in your attention to detail regarding capitalization and punctuation alignment. Thanks for this jewel of an observation. Have a nice day.

I love the dual purpose of yawning, as a physical description and a metaphysical waking up of the day at dawn. Beautifully done, and I very much enjoyed the read.

This is very pretty. I love the idea that the mouth of the river is yawning and nature is waking with the sun for another day of being beautiful.

Thanks for sharing this one. I'm glad I saw it.

Tranquil and beauteous haiku.
It has the enchantment of a
nature haiku which I'm almost
certain is the hallmark of
traditional haiku. Bravo and my very best wishes for the
contest. Blessings ~
