stick figure

you failed to take root
needles browned, dropped, blew away –
bare, barren, alone

stick figure

This poor little tree withered under my care and inspired the haiku for day 8 of NaHaiWriMo. I stubbornly keep using this badge even though I’m too scared not to write lines of 5-7-5 syllables. 

No 5-7-5

  1. Sorry about the little tree. I have no green thumb, so most of my plants turn out that way, sad to say. Nice haiku, though! I’m the same, I put the ‘no 5,7.5’ logo on mine, but to me a haiku is only 5-7-5 … otherwise, it’s something else! 🙂


What do you have to say about that?
