Ki-Anne and Hay(nu)ku

 Ki-Anne
 daydreams quietly 
of sawing cedar
The aroma rises
from the
cut
Mindlovemisery's Menagerie with B&P Shadorma & Beyond challenges us with a new form of poetry writing today.  This is a hay(nu)ku with a reverse, I think. Sharing it with Open Link Night at  dVerse~Poets Pub.

Perhaps just as we sometimes envy their keen awareness, they envy us skills that they do not possess. I would love to be there when you are sawing through cedar, nothing smells better! My father used to bring us little cedar boxes when we were small, and I now have a large one that Papa Bear gave me for keeping tiny treasures.

Ah.. humans treasure
sight and hearing..
oh.. but other
animals
feel
and sense
so much..
more..
logic
less
than smelling
life as cedar
no less
than
dirt
of
home..
more when
fuller savored..:)

Awwwww the fragrance I am imagining!

Is it really that pink? Wow.

The combination of image and word is very powerful - almost as if the dog knows that the tree will hurt when it is cut..but it needs to be done and s/he will stand there to ensure it is 'ok' - powerful and effecting poetry

I love the smell of wood and cedar is the best!

I love our cedar trees, which are plentiful. The smells are so aromatic.
I love dogs, too. They know the simple pleasures...and they are one.
