A Haiku About Hay

slice of life 1

Today was a very long day. I started it with an  8AM meeting and finally got  home around 8.  I was hungry, but I trudged out to the barn to feed my horse first. It had been a long winter and I was tired of frozen water and shoveling snow from the pasture.     The idea for a poem began  when I put some hay  in Blue’s haynet.  A haiku.

Cutting the bale’s twine,

I released an explosion

Of freshly mowed hay.
