Skeleton Tree

skeletal remains                                     
ancestral tree  of life
portrait of ruin                                          

valley of dry bones
branches broken and scattered
generations lost

Breath of  life returned
deepened roots of faith grown strong
Epitaph of hope

    Thank you for your kind comments!! I have not been on the soup for awhile because I have a medical problem from being in a car wreck about two years ago. I have something called RSD in both my left arm and leg. It is very painful and lately it has gotten worse. But I am determined not to become this things victim! I will be back soon!

    Well done haiku series, Lori... Love the way the first two refer to death and dying and the last verse rings with hope and faith - Tim
