#Tanka Tuesday #Poetry Challenge No. 131


Colleen is back with her Tuesday challenges. Her synonyms this week are “beginning & consume”. I hope my haibun meets the criteria.  





I witnessed a bold emergence, a radicle reaching for earth; the primary root. It took hold, the hypocotyl extending, the cotyledons sloughing off the protective seed coat, their energy expended as the embryonic leaves turned towards the sun. The sun was then devoured; absorbed and transmuted, until, miraculously, it took the form of a tree, in the very spot where once I saw this bold emergence from a winged seed.
