Cast Away

Haiku Heights (Pariah)


lovely dandelion
revered by tortoise
pariah to gardeners

pariah by choice
like spines of a cactus
distance for safety

  5. I was so lost with this prompt my meagre offering will go up later, I came to see yours first and yes you have taken it another direction and up a notch or two - stunning Maggie.

    1. You are always so kind with your comments. Thank you. Some days, I'm so at a loss with a prompt. Uninspired. It's tough to write a haiku emotionally detached from it. Maybe you will be inspired in a new direction before you publish. Always enjoy visiting your blog.

  6. This is so funny....we both came up with the same thought about dandelions! I did not know that tortoises like them! Thanks for that!

    1. It's that time of year when homeowners start scorning the "lowly" dandelion. I was happy to see you thought of it too :)
