in the mushroom cap
first raindrops

    Very nice.

  2. Mary Stevens Says:

    I love how moist and slimy this poem is: the raindrops, the mushroom, and the fabulous slug are all so keenly perceived! Nicely, done! :)

    'fabulous' slug…that's nice, too. We ignore them mainly because of their unpleasant glutinous feel, but they do a pretty good clearing up job, even if they do get to the coveted mushrooms before you do.

    leaf litter
    beneath the chestnut trees
    slugs munching penny buns

    It's always great to see the less glamourous perceived life forms represented in haiku!

    slug paths
    do they see through
    the eyes of God
