Prompt 29: Seeds

Thanks to Teri of Teri's Mandalas for this week's prompt of seeds.

It is an old bridge in North Dakota with an unused one-room school house in the background. When I saw what a survivor this sunflower was I was inpsired to paint it and write the haiku.

The sunflower bridge
Seeds were planted by the birds
To brighten our day

  1. That is a lovely water colour. I wish I had that skill.

    I do like the symbols in your works: the school house to me represents the hope of the future; the bridge is a connection of the past with the present.

    Nice method of responding to the theme ...

  2. It's a great prompt! I coudn't just make one...

  3. How I love your painting symbolising the struggle of seeds to grow anywhere! Beautiful tones!

  4. Great prompt for a gardener like me. I love that watercolor, Teri.

  5. Teri,

    Thank you for such an inspiring prompt. Your words and photo remind me to take notice of the smaller things in the picture of life.

  6. Thanks everyone and thanks to OSI for always inspiring me each week.

    I did create a new haiku and post to my own prompt :)

  7. Sunflowers are one of my favorite plants and I was inspired by your haiku to write a little acrostic! Lovely painting!

  8. Good prompt. ^_^

    My take on it is a bit different than the picture, though.
