~ Haiku ~                                                                       ~ Haiku ~

On the tree, rising

against howling gales,

What capricious climb!

Conquering palm tree,

Either to climb or to die,

Vehemence to live.

  • Absolutely loved the use of capricious here – every step in uncertain and unpredictable and yet the vehemence to live encourages him!

    • Thank you so much. Very well said! This is why we call life the biggest teacher. Struggles give him that carefree approach !
