My guess would be a mountain, but I could be wrong. I think that because of the location, "tree-flesh," and "granite underbones." This is a nice haiku. I'm sorry that I don't have anything constructive to say, Amy
Heh, heh, heh...I can make a guess, but it probably wouldnt be the right one. haikus (bless u) are so cool, very descriptive, yet lets the mind wander...and in my current state of mind, I wonder about things in a tripped out way. I will just say that this was very sensual and can go in many different directions. Jeez, haikus (bless u) are grrrrrrrrrrrr8! Have a good one and keep smilin'
I like this Haiku, but it's the other one that I think really has the essence of a true'haiku" in it. Saying so much in such a limited way. To me this is the safer more schooled haiku. I believe it deals with the genesis of Earth and makes a nice reference to the sleeping dragon, a widely regarded myth held by the chinese culture concerning the origins of earth, and therefore a nod to the original authors of Haiku. Good write, but I still, as I said, love the other one. Ashley
