Haiku: Teenager

Steadfast and stubborn

The young tree no longer bends

But stands like an oak

  1. The best haiku I've read yet in the blogathon. You are a born poet, Jenny.

    1. Thanks, Jackie! For some reason, though, I can't stop myself from imagining that mine is the first one you clicked on today... ;)

    2. Ditto what Jackie said. This is a truly wonderful hiaku. When I was a poetry editor and judged the haiku contests,this would have the top prize. You really do have "it." Writing haiku looks deceptively simple but it takes a rare talent to capture its essence so perfectly. Congratulations!
