Neglected Garden Haiku

Feet breathing rosy
near a bed of blue hybrids
violets wear faces


Viscous yellow life
seeps from cracked turquoise shell
robin abortion


Rebel ant defects
poisoned colony fortress
stray auburn soldier

this is totally fantabulous! my mom has a huge garden she's kept up forever and this would be a fitting tribute.  i still hate ants, however.  well, fire ants at least.
A mind is a precious thing to taste.

the last haiku is my favorite, the rebel ant just struck a chord with me.
