Alien Germination

Post by RHFay »

This is yet again one of my attempts at a "titled" scifaiku. Does the title really work with this piece? I think it could just as easily stand on its own, without the title. Does the title add something, or does it just detract from the revelation?

(For those of you who have been following my work, you might have noticed that I used the concept of "vampire trees" before, in my poem "Cosmic Journey", published in the e-zine The Sword Review. I don't mind reusing my own concepts and creations, if I can do something a bit different each time.)
