Yucca Haiku

Anger wears poems
Like a tower of pale blooms
Rising from yucca.

  1. Anger got big knuckles
    Anger play the fool
    Anger wear a crown of thorns
    Reverse the Golden Rule

    Love the imagery of this poem/haiku(?). My eyes see it so clearly.
    Behold, the power of poetry.
    Thank you for posting this, and for posting it this day.

      Eduardo,
      How did I not see your post for two weeks?

      This song has been floating through my head all day since reading your lyrical response. I shall never grow tired of Rush, or you, brother.

      Thanks for reading.

    I saw a flowering Yucca, as soon as I read your Haiku sometime ago, even though in the area I grew up Yucca was rare perhaps because it was choked out by a thick carpet of Sage Brush. Perhaps it’s just me, but I can’t imagine one poetic thought about Sage Brush.

      I bet you can! Write a haiku about it. 17 syllables have a way of helping us see. If you do, send it to me!
