Privy to the Mystery

Updated on May 30, 2013

Apricot: high coup

of a tree giving birth to

a premature peach.

Addendum to Haiku

I wish it were possible to simply present the poem along with the beautiful picture. The essence of haiku, after all, is its brevity.

But I hear tell Google, like the original prideful counterfeit, came slithering to the garden and created a crisis where once there had been bliss.

And so haiku in its purest essence was no longer deemed art but rather in dire straits of being substandard.

What's a peach tree to do?

    Hi, Treathyl!

    Thanks for sharing your gracious comments. I definitely take creative license in opining about Google. I'm not religious, but I am indeed very spiritual. While I tread carefully and try my best not to mix church with state, there's just something about Google that gives me the it might be linked to the illuminati.

    A comparison of Google to the serpent who deceived Eve? Gotta say I heard that one here first! :) Nice haiku. I could never do it.

    i do not know much about Haikus, but i do remeber being told one of my hubs was substandard until I added a little more to it.I think it was another picture. Could be you have too little content.

    Thank you, clairemy! I'd intended to keep this hub short, but I'm getting hit with a substandard message. You know, I remember reading another person's hubs...he or she was writing a haiku a day for a month, as I recall. Anyway, I'm still learning the ropes. Any advice? Much obliged!

    Few words can say so much, and so does the photo.
