one look back and we’ve both
I don’t support carving up trees, but I’m not above mimicking that look in a haiga. (The little hearts here are a standard Snapseed font feature.) Fortunately, Plummer’s Hollow is off the beaten path enough that the few graffitied beeches are vastly outnumbered by those with only natural markings, such as these wonderfully eye-shaped limb scars.
I’m not sure what the rules are about Greek mythological allusions in haiku, but certainly in Japanese haiku, literary allusions are one of the traditional ways to allow haiku to suggest more than their brevity otherwise permits.
