Weed

Under your touch I
flourish like a weed in a
forgotten garden.

I'm trying to decide if that's a good thing or a bad thing!

Things That Flourish Here and Here and Here

You've created such an impact in so few words. What a striking and lovely haiku.

Forgotten garden... thought-provoking.

Heaven said...

I will take it as a good thing...

Great to see you MZ tackling shorter forms ~ Challenging, isn't it?

Jim said...

Ms. Z, your poet needed that touch! I am reminded by your "Weed" of the poem that most of have memoized, "The Touch of the Master's Hand".

Fantastic! When every one treats weed with contempt you have chosen its "quality to spread" to convey a strong positive emotion.

Fireblossom said...

Dare I say I like this, and ruin my reputation for hating haiku?

Ah well, what's one more ruined rep? I like it!

Beautiful words/meaning and I love the picture they convey! Hope you have a great week!

Growing luxuriantly, to flourish is a brilliant idea!! Love the 'forgotten garden' or the weeds could well be uprooted!! :)

Lovely thought.

Cheryl said...

I love this one. So much truth lies within these 17 syllables.

Nice metaphor, Mama Z! And boy, do I know what you mean by weeds flourishing - my poor garden plot didn't get planted this year and has become a ribbon-worthy weed patch.

some people can just do that to a person, we are lucky to have them and that we flourish under their care!

Steve Isaak said...

I love the either/or feel of this - is this wondrousness, or a pestiferous pairing? Excellent.

Ed Pilolla said...

put me down for one of those anonymous comments:)

This doesn't necessarily sound like a bad thing.

Leo said...

whoa! what a stunning bit of imagery here! :)

Susie Clevenger said...

Lovely...it could be body or mind or both that flourish....

Madeleine said...
