Roots #atozchallenge #poetry


roots

Deeply rooted

spring soil welcomes new life

sodden past

*

sun smiles knowingly

discarded tiger lilies

age-old struggle

*

old life removed

nature taunts failure

can’t dig away pain

R

This set of haiku shared with  A to Z Challenge for the letter R as well as Poets United Mid week Motif – this week’s prompt Poets United

What can be more organic than haiku written while I was standing in the soil. As I was digging yesterday, I grabbed my phone, took pictures of the roots I have dug up for 4 years and I wrote about my struggle on my (now grimy) notepad.
