Dark moss seeking sun

Birch bent with acknowledgement

Child runs to mother.


Grass rising in dew

Casts crushed footsteps aside

Finds father in child.

    🙂 He’s just like his dad, a chip off the old block. Nice logic here, R.K.
    Thank you for peeking in on my looonng poem.
    Sometimes it is hard to stop if a person doesn’t say all he feels needs to be said.

    I so enjoy the personification of nature here…you bring all the characters here to life with your words. Beautiful opening, too.

    This feels very Zen-like. Or perhaps acceptance is a Zen of it’s own creation? Glad to catch this on a calm, relaxing Sunday. Enjoyable read.

    Missed the gang there at PU; that are so gracious in accepting my/everyone’s work. Soooooo

    Ya, I did look it up when I was researching… it seemed like an awkward word to me too. But, I settled with
    noun: acknowledgement…acceptance of the truth or existence of something.

    Very nice use of natural imagery to convey emotion ZQ.

    Mother and Father are both there to be recognized–and what a reunion that is and will always be.

    A lovely haiku response ~ In the first, I like the symbolism of dark moss seeking the sun ~ The second I find intriguing as it is from another perspective specially with “Finds father in child” ~

    Thanks for linking up with Real Toads & wishing you happy weekend ~

    Acceptance. Nice imagery, simple, clean. Not sure how I feel about the word ‘acknowledgement’, I’m not sure how well it fits in with the rest being so long and abstract. But maybe the word grows on you? Anyway, thanks for sharing your work.

    Thank you…and good morning to you sir. 🙂

    ha. nice…the alliteration pulls this along smooth…the birch bent and the grass rising after the footsteps…cool imagery and symboilism
