HuMp DaY Haiku - Hidden Treasure

Woodland walk in Spring
Cottonwoods along the path
Seeking early growth.

Cautious of nettles
amid native bleeding hearts.
Spring treasure hunters
Peeking underneath
the soggy brown leaf layer
will they find the prize? 

If you know what this is... you can imagine our delight when we discovered an undisturbed patch and recovered nearly half a gallon. Ah, spring! 

I started doing Hump Day Haiku with Carla Sonheim's Silly classes...  and decided as a challenge for myself, I'd continue.  In this process, I have found that creating a haiku (non rhyming poem with 5 - 7 - 5 syllables per line) feeds my soul. 
I especially like creating them to go with my photos and art. 

Would you like to share a haiku you have written? 

You may include a haiku in the comments, OR you may copy your blog post url (featuring a haiku) and add a link to your blog using Mr. Linky. And consider visiting other contributors blogs to see what they've created and say hello.  

(Footnote: You're looking for Morel mushrooms, one of this area of the Northwest's spring treasures)

I don't know what I'm looking for in this photo? A half gallon of what?

Helen Campbell said...

Cheryl, you're looking for Morel mushrooms hidden among the leaf litter. :)

Love your Haiku and yes, there may be a treasure under all those leaves. Happy day to you.
