Maternity Ward



green grass springs skyward
seed of winter’s frozen womb
hope is born anew 

*** 

Linked in at Haiku Heights, where the prompt this week is "Green."  This piece is a fix-up of one I wrote ages ago, before I had a clue what a haiku was.

    Thanks for dropping by my place!

  14. I love it, Patti. I don't know what you wrote ages ago, but the fix-up is a delicious haiku.
    Last winter I wrote "The pregnant earth", a poem in Spanish - La tierra preñada -, about how life is growing under the snow:

    In just three rich lines you have resumed the idea wonderfully.
    Your Blog is a nice place to find beauty and tenderness, I'll come back.
    Thanks for sharing.
    :)
