The Potato, haiku by Robyn MacKinnon at

The Potato

written by: Robyn MacKinnon



Before the chaos

gorgeous and generous friend

picked the potato



Illustration description: A background of a split sky, the left side dark and smoggy, the right side full of brightly coloured clouds. The uneven terrain is black on the left and earth colour on the right. In the ground where the two sides meet, a potato puts up white flowers just above the earth. On the right-hand side, a person kneels on the ground, reaching for the potato. They are a flat, splintered shape – featureless and colour bright turquoise. They have no recognizable hair or other features, simply appearing as a humanoid silhouette. The first, second, and third lines of the haiku occupy the top left, upper center, and center-right, respectively. The words appear in white, Bickham Script Pro 3 Bold font.
