koan

strong yet pliant grass
pushing up through concrete--
cracking a koan

Thank you, John and Alan.

I had pre-written a May Day haiku, but I ended up submitting it to a journal that doesn't accept poems that have appeared on line, so it will appear in Magnapoets soon.

Pushing through the concrete...cracking!

what a grass that is!

oh yeah if the concerete has holes...but then it doesn't have to crack..

anyway, there's an image I like in it, Nora :)

wishes,
devika

Did the stone wall bow, to its defeat by the acorn?

I do so like it... when the minimal succeeds.

Nora, Your haiku is that blade of grass, But Ho! That is complimentary, -not-
minimal!
