Sense of Place – Smell


August 29, 2018 by petrujviljoen

Thrilled The Haiku Foundation published my haiku:

groundswell on the
– petrichor

Following are the others I submitted:

spring greening
mountain slopes
scent of life

rounding the mountain
leaving the trodden hikers’ trail
– wafts of weeping sage

Breaths of early mountain;
earthed heaven
accommodating spirit

nostrils flare with the
scent of space
beyond the mountain

rucksack heavy at
the time of the full sun
sweating on the mountain

mountain braced –
mellow tinge
of the wild fig
