Trust Nature – Haiku #11



 ” sown seed, prisoner,

of fertile earth, little girl

doubtful, sweaty hands,

~ ~ ~

doubful, sweaty hands,

tense eyes, twitchy lips, patience – 

– tested, time elapses,

~ ~ ~

tested, time elapses,

before long, green hope rises,

doubts off, a happy she smiles “




meaning :

the seed sown is a prisoner,

of  the fertile earth, the little girl who sowed it,

starts to doubt “why hasn’t it grown yet“,  causing sweaty hands.

~  ~ ~

still doubting, with sweaty hands,

eyes showing the nervousness, lips giving away the shivers of uncertainty, patience is tested,

and time, as usually, elapses.

~ ~ ~

more time elapses,

and not very long after, the seed grows, breaking earth, rising up,

the nervous girl, sheds off doubt, she smiles.


Suggestions are most welcome, I’m still learning Haiku. :)

This post is an entry in Haiku Challenge for April 2012 at Haiku Heights. The prompt being “doubt”.
