I see a toadstool
Hiding ‘neath a spotted cap
Fresh dew like tear drops
Behind the Poem...Aesthetic
There isn't much to the background of this poem. I like the fantasy aesthetic I see on Pinterest and Instagram, with the little frogs and mushroom hats. After having researched what makes a haiku a "haiku" aside from the 5-7-5 structure in the past, I really felt like this simplistic idea really fit the theme. It's just a sweet little observation about a plant that I like.
And in case your wondering, what I understand makes a haiku a haiku is that it's always present tense, and typically an observation about nature that holds a deeper meaning. There's not quite a "deeper meaning" to this one, unless you want to consider the sociological implications of the fantasy and cottagecore aesthetics. As I said, it's a sweet little observation about a plant I like.
