Easter

20 Apr

Renewed garden

Serpent coiled beneath earth

Irrigating roots

*

Open Eden’s gate

Fallen apple growing seed

New fruit in blossom

    Your comment made me laugh. You summed up my laboured 14 lines in one effortless one-line comment. Brill.

    You’re so lucky having serpents water your garden for you 🙂
    Have to confess: these are the first haiku actually like.

    even the fallen apple finds resurrection in the new life of its seed…
    i do believe the serpent is taking the roots from under us though
    for sure

    Thinking about Adam and Eve’s story we should be grateful for their errors and for the snake’s cunning otherwise we wouldn’t be here writing. Look on the bright side!
