Progress? Haiku 1,2 & 3

I'm getting there! I'm almost ready to post Clare's suggestion of 60 school memories, in 4 stages from earliest to last.
60 Haiku will trickle along, starting today

Haiku 1
ash-grey, brief starlife-silver
gone, flaking snowfalls.

Haiku 2
bumbling fumbling bee
honeyed harlot hibiscus
scarlet skirts a-swirl

Haiku 3
jolly redcap gnome
booted bellied garden guard
docile army. Why?

The first is element #60 for the geeks. As it says, Nd oxidises very fast, but shines as a brief flash of silver, somewhat like us?
3 came uninvited while listening to a radio article on gnomes.

  1. Brilliant! Neodymium makes me think of Catullus -- "Suns can set and rise again, but for us, when our brief light goes out, there is eternal darkness."
