Richard Wright -Troiku

Carpe Diem Special # 122,  Richard Wright's 3rd haiku

I give permission
For this slow spring rain to soak
The violet beds.

© Richard Wright







I give permission
for mayhem in the garden
weeds left unchecked

for this slow spring rain to soak
the parched ground prays
on a hot june day

the violet bed
yawns with yellow dandelions
awakened from sleep


inspired Haiku


under decaying leaves
one green shoot
shows itself

  1. Very nice! I especially like the mayhem of the weeds and the dandelions --- truly unappreciated characters in the garden :D

    1. Thanks Kristjaan. The haiku was an afterthought. I almost didn't publish it. So glad you liked it.:0)

  3. It doesn't take much moisture to awaken the dandelions, does it?

  4. "Mayhem in the Garden" sounds like a biblical epic, doesn't it? ;)

    Who Gave Permission?

    1. Hadn't thought of it until you mentioned it. I like that idea.

  5. I may well adopt your opening haiku as a motto and hang it proudly in my garden, thanks! ;)
