Hoya

Wasn’t it this time

last  year

that  your hoya

blossomed

and in your excitement

and joy

you plucked

its single delicate

flower

to bring

to me?

Comments or critique from Bob:

Excitement and joy, one or other,  both are too extended.
Nature – a single flower central experience.
Haiku form with one short thought or can take two
and usually does contrast.
