Back to Nature

deep breaths
the tide fills
shallow waters

I'm el naturale
poison ivy on my junk
swelling worth the pain

stems bow
downpour in spring
strength returns

the path less traveled
looks exactly like the rest
clearly I am lost

petals ponder
the sun winks
darkness follows

    1. Thanks bluey.
      I’ve never been stung by poison ivy, I only know of it from American film and TV. I kinda wish I had so I know what all the fuss is about ๐Ÿคฃ๐Ÿ’š


      1. Hmmmm, I say ignore the fire, but well done for doing it as well.
        I have decided to go with 5/7/5 and using the word Haiku even when I know it’s not accurate. I think it’s easier for non-poetic people to relate to and understand… slightly more accessible for the ‘masses’.

      2. Thanks. Most my readers come from western countries so I use the same system.
        I could go into great detail and criticize others for their use of poetic forms and terms but what’s the point.
        The fact that people are creating is the most important thing. It should be encouraged not seized by semantics.
