Weeds Grow, I Remove Them..

Written for OSI and Haiku Heights..


Weeds grow, I remove
Them, but then they keep coming
Like negative thoughts…


****

Beautiful roses,
Surrounded by weeds, Don't
We meet them, often..

****

Here's especially for Haiku Heights Challenge…. Lets know more about  Elephant and Ant..

Just made for him, ant
Completes elephant, remove
Her, it's just ‘eleph’ ...

  1. We do meet the roses often, surrounded by weeds - it's kinda like having a blog!

    Lovely haiku.

  2. I thoroughly enjoyed these, especially the first one. So true negative thoughts and weeds, both keep coming back.
    I loved the elephant and ant one - such a clever play with the words.
    Thanks for a great read.

  9. Ou thoughts can be compared with weeds. We've to clear them once in a while.
    Your haiku is so simple yet thought provoking.
