Haiku Challenge Accepted!

I continue to feel brave today and have decided to post a haiku for Brian’s nature themed Comment-a-Haiku Poetry Competition at Vita Brevis. I’ve actually been feverishly writing haikus all weekend, looking at old nature photos I’ve taken, and staring intently out the window looking for inspiration.

It was difficult to pick one that I thought would be a worthy competitor – there is a plethora of talent and beautiful imagery in the comments section of the post. I picked the one that called to my sense of “nature haiku poetry”.

Below is my submission for the Vita Brevis nature themed haiku challenge. If you continue to scroll down, you’ll be able to read some of my other nature themed haiku musings. Thank you so much for this opportunity, Brian! Drum roll, please….

Nature: A Mother’s Love

We reap your colors

And still, you send us rainbows

Your tears mixed with oil

******

(My runner ups)

Morning on the First Day of Camping

Cool fingers massage

My city shoulders relax

Green giants heal me

Sacrifice

I heard you drowned in

Plastic bags and straws so, I

Trade coffee for water

Not happily every after

Can’t think of beauty

Without beastly pollution

Nature has no prince

******

Did I make the right decision? What’s your favorite?
