Thrive
 
[“...life goes on...” Millay, Frost]
 
gale winds
        trees shaken
let loose pollen ambrosia
falling leaves
        ground snow
 
vernal blooms
        craze  bees
copious pollinators
set life
        to thrive  on

5-75 is that a Japanese form as well?

Thanks Brod for liking. Yes you’re right 575 is haiku. I only reformat the tercet haiku into a quintain/limerick but retain the third line a 7 syllable.
