National Poetry Month -- Haiku 28

I've been thinking lately about how much effort we're meant to put into things -- or how little.
When should we be really proactive and when should we let life flicker?
How do we know when to energize and when to surrender?
What's the role of intuition and what's the role of training?
What difference does it make, whether I'm leading or bringing up the rear?
Etc....

The answers, of course, are circumstantial.
But today I'll take my cue from the squash blossom out front.
Because why not?



Haiku 28


volunteering vine
curbside, bright egg-yolk blossom;
sometimes things just grow
