First weekly haiku

My Haiku mentor, Howard Kilby has freed me from counting syllables. His emphasis is catching a moment in time, getting the emotion out of a very small slice of life. That’s where my writing really needs to go right now. So, here’s my first one. The image has a lot of meaning for me, as it’s literally right in my own backyard!

                              Sturdy apple sapling stands,

                              Sheltered for now by

                              Motherly iris ruffles.
