__There are some flowers that only bloom at night, thus, they take advantage of that night's flies to procreate. "Shame on me; a metaphor... in something I've labled -haiku-."


light fades
beyond these sunset hills
night blossoms

"Old men get some soldiers, keep them close at hand,
The seeds that were sown yesterday now flower in the land
And guard yourself most carefully with military might.
For plants that cannot bloom by day must flower in the night"

"Flowers of the Night"

Night blooming flowers are some of the most fragrant....Beautiful haiku, Magyar :)

wishes,
devika
