Poetry Friday: Haiku for the new year

New year, new Poetry Friday procrastination! I’m late, but I’m here. This month we’re writing haiku on the theme of foresight, or the new year.


My amaryllis
bulb grew a new shoot this week.
Someone watered it.

I had to travel for work so I was out of the office for about a week. I came back today to find that the soil around my amaryllis bulb is newly damp and it’s growing happily. Thanks, anonymous plant-loving coworker! The lesson of today’s poem is that sometimes you make zero effort and everything is still okay.

Please visit my poetry sisters and read their January haiku!

Poetry Friday is hosted this month by Jone Rush MacColloch at Deo Writer.
