Feeling down or despondent is often times hidden,
Summer shoes to be
Discarded, corner tossed
Feet free in the grass
A prompt from dVerse about shoes, I’ve always enjoyed hot weather when I can kick them off! This is a haiku, 5-7-5 syllables. I always have trouble with syllables because when in primary school they taught us to count them by the amount of times our chin went down when we said the word, well with my Australian accent words tend to become a little compressed! Does anyone have a better method of counting syllables?

I am a seed in brown casing
Dreaming in darkness of shifting sizes and creaking doors,
Sheilded by my long brown hair, knees curled in,
I am so close to the ground, my mind is swirling in the skies,
Content as I am, does a seed know how far it will shoot?
This was such a long time ago. I actually wrote this while I was driving, on the way home on the highway with my family. As I was driving, I couldn’t exactly write, so I memorized the whole thing somehow and wrote it down when we got home. I believe we were very close to home at the time otherwise this would have been lost into oblivion for all time.
