5.13 (dj) MLMM Sat Mix, haikai 33/ great mother – earth – Daily Jewels by Jules

#Haiku Happenings #8: Jules’ #renga soliloquy for my current #haikai challenge!

great mother – earth

hazy daze, seeder
spreads germ across damp spring fields
ringed by old cedar

days lengthen crops will grow tall
corn will tassel, wheat will grow

farmhands toiling land;
some city dwellers only
dream of open space

ringed by concrete walls; germs spread –
kept at bay by healthy foods

come out of the haze
give thanks and praise to farmers
in every season


MLMM Sat Mix Homophone sets this week are: cedar – an evergreen tree; seeder – one who broadcasts seeds and days – more than one day; daze – to bewilder

Frank’s haikai 33
…let our kigo be Spring rain (harusame) or Autumn rain (aki no ame)

Note: germ is another word for seed.

Email me if you want to visit my longer verse and fiction sites.
I’d be happy to send you the links if you don’t already have them.
