our old boat –
the sowthistle have made it

Note: I’m working on improving my craft. I liked the idea of my original haiku (the boat we forgot: /the sowthistle have made it/ a flowerpot) but the first line seemed clunky.

Haiku: Ghost Koi

ghost koi

 

Note: Ghost koi are a hybrid species created by breeding koi with carp. The first ghost koi were dark-coloured and blended well enough with the dark depths of a pond that only the occasional glint of their scales gave them away.
