Mother earth





lemony summer     
planting rice stalks in rich soil, 
butterflies abound


~0~0


seeds in my small hands  
grow to tall and mighty trees,   
giants walking earth 


~0~0


black smoke and grey fumes
above the white cityline,
drooping sunflowers 




Written for Few Miles Haiku Challenge 2012 for the month of February:   Day 2- Mother

  9. thank you for the lemony freshness,
    the walking giants planted by your hand and the attention called to how it can be smudged by smoke and fumes.

    any chance to call attention to these exigent issues in an artistic venue has more significance.
