Haiku: Echo-ruminations

The hills never bow down
Else, Pilgrim, how could
They echo a haiku?

For Haiku-Heights, Haiku Heights Challenge

Echo Bonus:

When I took up this challenge by a wonderful haiku community, I had not written a haiku. 

Well, that might not be accurate. 

I could have written it without having known that it was a haiku. As the Challenge ends today, I feel glad to have taken up the challenge. My haiku are still nascent but with time I will perfect them. 

I feel good when I parade my failures. That way, I will have some evidence of where I came from. 

For those who had found time to read the pieces, "asante sana".

I LOVE your haiku. And I love it when you address your readers as Pilgrim. Which we all are. Love that the hills dont bow down. Fantastic writing, as always, kiddo.

Thanks Koko. There is a ring to the word 'pilgrim' that fascinates me too. :)

Thank you Magical Mystical Teacher. Yes. I know what I am capable of doing and it has been a nice journey of discovery.

Must be loud enough then, Andy Sewina. There are so many caves here. Glad you set foot in the hills.

I'd say YOU can't say you've never written a haiku NOW.
