A planting haiku

tearing apart roots
spun too long in small spaces–
the break before bloom

This was sort of inspired by Paul’s lovely haiku, here:

I love when that happens!

    You are a marvel. I don’t attempt poetry of any kind, but if’n I tried, it would be akin to a hybrid stick figure cat with a balloon body. Oh, and it would probably start with a sample, like hi ho… 😉

  5. And what a wonderful bloom it would be 🙂

  6. Just what we’ve been doing this last week. Well, my husband. I’ve been relegated to tearing out the weeds that grow between the brick pathway. Love the precision of this haiku.
