The Land

Day 13 – Experiement with Word Count

A traditional Japanese haiku is a three-line poem with seventeen syllables, written in a 5/7/5 syllable count. Often focusing on images from nature, haiku emphasizes simplicity, intensity, and directness of expression….the focus on a brief moment in time; a use of provocative, colorful images; an ability to be read in one breath; and a sense of sudden enlightenment and illumination.

– Academy of American Poets

He sits on a branch

The bough ready to break free

Of his deception

———————

The trees give cover

As alms for humanity

But Justice will rain

To reap sewn calamity
———————

Cold and merciless

Inauthentic hearts puff hard

The Land knows the truth

———————

Freedom is not free

Pledged with a soulful payment

A serfs life for me

———————-

Connect with the land

Fleeting, the world will not stand

Keep your heart beating
