Huntress Haikus Vol. 1

While the other tribe members are changing flat tires in the middle of nowhere, what’s a food huntress to do? Shoot pictures. Then write haikus.

----------------

Cotton- candy clouds,
In your gaze I am a child
Searching for my soul.

---------------
How long have you stayed
On your roots deep in the ground?
Trees witness the past.
____________

Stretch your arms, tall tree
Receive blessings from the sky
The fruits on my plate.


In the endless space
Water, air, earth and sunlight
We are nobody.

-------------------

Blue sky, still mountains
Are you having an affair?
Tell me your story.
------------------

You are true treasure;
From the mud you grow to give
Rice grains for mankind.




Little roadside blooms
Sun feeds you, rains quench your thirst
What else do you need?
------------------

Drops of gold sunshine
Growing in a place so bare
No one to envy.
------------------

Beautiful flowers
You hide your tears and live on
In adversity.
