Meet the Sun

radical loving
root by root

the words
you gave me

virus forced 
us inside alone

took me 
a long time

Now grow, plants.
Meet the sun.

Day Ten International Poetry Month

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."

My blog poems are rough drafts.

I love the planting of radical loving. May it bloom and thrive.
