Meet the Sun

radical loving
root by root

From
the words
you gave me

Before 
virus forced 
us inside alone

Forgiving 
took me 
a long time

Now grow, plants.
Meet the sun.





Day Ten International Poetry Month
 NaPoWriMo

Today’s prompt (optional, as always) is another one from the archives, first suggested to us by long-time Na/GloPoWriMo participant Vince Gotera. It’s the hay(na)ku), a three line poem.  I've written the hay(na)ku sonnet, described by Vince in April 2012: 

"Four hay(na)ku, adding up to twelve lines, and then a couplet of three words per line, each equivalent to the third line of a hay(na)ku. This means that each stanza, in whatever shape, contains six words. A total of 30 words for the whole poem, then."
