acorn – haiku/fun-ru

🙂 A very clever prompt for a haiku … http://unfetteredbs.com/2012/12/29/re-new-haiku/#comment-6922 and more fun here http://stephenkellogg.wordpress.com/2012/12/29/acorn-haiku/

UGH Had to tanka it. 🙂 Does it count? It’s still an attempt!

precariously
I stretch – toes on the last rung
just beyond my reach
the acorn, a fat Buddha
serenely watching me sweat

    Oh, this had better count, it is fantastic. The acorn as a remote, otherworldly but still in-the-world thing. Love it. Watching you sweat like we would watch a sunrise.

    Yep – it may not be haiku, but it’s got that ‘spiritual truth’ things happening, and it made me titter – definitely counts 😀
