Treasure Poem by M.J. Lemon


Rating: 4.3

Look, emerald shoots
These are the treasures of Spring
This land will be paved.

Valsa George 16 August 2019

With spring, green shoots will appear! Though they are the treasures of nature, when the land is paved with brick or stones, they will be destroyed! I think you are concerned about it..........or are you happy that the land will be covered in green shoots with the arrival if spring? A beautiful haiku!

Where there are flowers I see a pavement to arrive so close to the colors and aroma. A beautiful poem!

Awesome! Your comment is just one syllable short of being a human haiku....that would make it a perfect companion piece....

I like this. The strong and contemporary message in three simple lines has a grace that would be clouded by too many words. (ie, this review) . It inspires me to explore the Haiku.
