The Haiku Challenge II
Here's this week's haiku dabbling, as provoked by Suze:
'For the second week of Tiny Harmonies, grab the cat and start ruminating on adaptability. All haiku for week two will air Friday, 15 March… It's weird, last Friday as I read the offerings of participants, it was like having salt thrown on the tongue -- instead of satisfying, it left me thirsty for more.'
First I ruminated on the limits of adaptability:
Through solid trunk
Rotted at core
The supplest branch
I don't much care for the second try, it seems too obvious: true, but obvious. The third try was more spontaneous and relaxed, so it turned out best, I think:
Into my boot tops
Also I am glad this is how I spent yesterday, for today it has mostly rained.
