lamb’s ear

My fourth (and final) week of being a Daily Haiku Cycle 13 contributor. Please follow along!

lamb’s ear
the softness
of summer rain

I love the feel of Lamb’s ear leaves. I was thinking of that, as I penned this haiku at the beginning of summer, when it was very rainy. Lamb’s ear also has the unfortunate characteristic of becoming somewhat invasive, so with great reluctance, I finally dug it out of my herb garden to make room for some of my other plants. I may attempt to grow it again one day, knowing now that it needs to be pruned severely back each year to keep it under control.
