Haiku challenge: Wild pleasure

Ronovan’s prompt words are Party & Enjoy. I have used rather tenuous synonyms.


In the long grass lies

young hare basking in the warmth—

dancing sun dapples.

I used to do lots of things I didn't much enjoy. Now I am officially a writer. It's what I always wanted to be.

  1. That’s a beautiful haiku. Other day I saw a video warning how small hares can be hidden below grasses and can die if the grass is mowed without much attention. They looked so fragile. Your haiku reminded me of them.

    1. That’s right. The young ones hide in the long grass and keep very still. What works for predators isn’t any good against mowing machines. I trod on a baby hare this spring. It didn’t move when I blundered onto its hiding place.

      1. Ah! That’s sad to hear. If we look at nature carefully, everything have a balance, a way of working out for animals for everything. Except us, we tip so many delicate balances out there without even knowing. We are a bit of a wild card or rebellious kids of mother earth!

      2. Sometimes I think that’s how things are supposed to be, the better one makes the rule, but we maybe smarter, there’s no indication of us being a better one I guess.
