Green - Haiku

                                             (Image Source: http://the-best-top-desktop-wallpapers.blogspot.in)


Green, envy echoes,
Whirlwind sweeps the shredded heart,
Doubt, lies and distrust.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Safety belt in place,
Patience and Perseverance,
Green light signals, go.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Go Green is the call,
Initiatives developed,
Now seeking results.


This Haiku is shared with Haiku Heights and the Prompt is Green.

  14. Did you mean these to be read separately or together? They work separately, but together they tell a very fine story with lovely changes in the meaning of green, from jealousy to GO! to a call to ecological cures. Truly the whirlwind would be able to do little to a heart in that new atmosphere, and the heart itself may be healed.

  20. Like the set, specially the first one ~

  21. The first one is my fav.
    You chose green envy, I chose green jealousy.
    I wrote about two ecologists.
    No coincidence with the second one waiting to take off.
    Green, for Hope, in your name, expecting good results.

  23. Nice variety of senryu with "green" being a metaphor for different emotions from jealousy to fear to freedom ... well done :)
