The last sentence of each haiku is made of wonderful.
'The sky is not broken' - that's such a beautiful line of poetry.
'Fire is the midwife' - those two images, of fire and then midwifery... The contrast is astounding, and I think that together, they echo upon each other, and it's a thoughtful way of expressing the science behind the germination of the seeds. It's pretty.
'Feeling superior is the best revenge' - and this just made me smile. Hell yeah. Well, It's clearly not supposed to do that to me, and the rest of the haiku is sort of, resigned, but I guess, I read it as a kind of recovery, vindication almost, and I'm not going to lie, I agree with that statement whole-heartedly.
You're good at this haiku business. )

oh lovely! I love the ponderous nature of the first, it fits the haiku form beautifully. and the second is wonderfully compact yet complete - love the fire midwife. Plus you get the sense of eons.
The third is, of course, an eternal mystery ;) )

I like the last one. :)

I am really fond of the Bristlecone pines haiku. that last line "fire is the midwife" is a very strong and positive line. I read these to my wife and she smiled very big and told me to tell you that they are lovely haikus.

Hmm, I'm not sure about the last one. The best revenge is letting the other person KNOW you're feeling superior.

Did you mean for the poems to be connected because i can see a connection?

I don't think these eternal mysteries will ever be solved. A lot of truth in these.

Sorry for not being around lately. I hope to be more active now. Just had a little time off... yeah, we'll call it that.
Anyway, enough babbling! I like this! Very well written!

Hey, been some time.
The first one was the most profound, the third makes a lot of sense once you think about it (I always convince myself that forgiving makes me the better person), and the second I didn't wholly get.

Fine workmanship, I like how you combined the three as separate thoughts but lightly connected.
| Mishikaiya chapter 1 . 2/20/2011
I really like the images conjured up by the first two as well as the wit behind the best revenge of the third haiku. Very well thought out.

This was good, and I really liked the imagery of the fire as the midwife for the trees, and the one about revenge holds a lot of truth too. Great job!
