Tropical hibiscus blooms generally last for only 24 hours,
but for that one day, they make a grand statement!

  4. Yes, for one single day, perhaps one sliver of a moment in one single day, happening all day, every day, with every movement of the Sun, Moon and Stars.

    Peace

  7. Wonderfully composed haiku. I love the photo very much. The Hibiscus just blooms for only 24 hours, it's sad, but in those 24 hours she is really a beauty.
