flooded fields and my mother
home is where heart is
zeus smiled at his work
well, who else can bring the boat
to the paddy fields
My first attempt at Haiku, in response to the Write Tribe Wednesday Prompt – Kigo Haiku.
PS : After procrastinating for more than two months, I finally thought of writing a new post using this prompt. I know my Haiku above has no poetic beauty and may not qualify as a Haiku, but only for the 17 syllables 🙂 So I did not want to link it to the prompt page, but then decided to link it so that any visitor here can get to read all the beautiful Haikus posted there and also learn from the tutorial and attempt to compose a Haiku.
