Birth in 5-7-5

Ballerina bud
Unfurled pirouetting birth
Seeks the warm spotlight

I love this as a resumé from a garden nursery.
I want to adopt this bud and settle its loveliness right on the lattice of my porch where the sun peeks through searching for a prism-maker! U R a dancer with lightlovely shoes! :)

Yes, it is pictorial and so alive despite the restricted space. It does find a spotlight.

What a vivid scene, painted with a living brushstroke, Life's first moment unfolding before our very eyes. A beautiful metaphor you have here.

With so few words, you have described so much life. I can really see the birth of the "ballerina bud". Beautiful piece! you have done a great job!

Worthy combination of human and flora, with definite haiku impact.
