Our friend, Mark S, offers another haiku prompt, “Cotton”. This guy knows just about Everything, I’m convinced. If you haven’t visited his blog, you’re missing out! Click the link to meet him—and learn something!
And now my haiku/senryu:
Cotton blossoms white
Raw pickers’ hands drip scarlet
Blood of servitude
Sharp bolls cut meanly
Back breaking labor, long days
Sing of “Promised Land”
