Seed's Poetry Corner: Hilltop Haiku

Seed's picture
I decided to play with some repetition and refrain in the haiku form. The opening line is based on an exchange I once heard: I offer my own answer. Mind you, I expect I could (and should) write a million things of what is best in life.

Hilltop Haiku

What is best in life?
Sunset and moss on the ground,
Four hooves in the air.

Four hooves in the air
Celebrating the hilltop;
We see a pink sky.

We see a pink sky
Where the ground evaporates;
We are just as light.

We are just as light
And then – some small rock is tossed,
Skittish bird takes flight.
