National Poetry Month is almost over! My goal of 30 poems in 30 days in on track; this is number 28. The count includes poetry posted on this blog, on NaHaiWriMo’s Facebook page, and on Twitter. 

This senryu is a response to the NaHaiWriMo prompt “roots.” The photo of Hilary Blackwood’s painting was also an inspiration. More info on Hilary’s work appears below the poem.
Some things need to rooted in the heart


tangled in your roots

two lives



I discovered Hilary Blackwood’s work on Flickr. You can view her photostream here. She also displays, discusses and sells some of her artwork via her blog and Etsy shop. Enjoy the view!
