My Tree's Seasons

Silent Voice

--Tree Silhouette-- 

shimmering tree
there’s no footsteps around       
but fallen leaves 

afternoon twilight
heaven is listening
peaceful lonesomeness
Autumn waits 
wind blows the mind   
leaves falling softly

Weeping Willow

Aphids like to dine
on the hardy willow tree
deciduous treat

Lay down your burdens
Weeping willow; cry no more
A new day has come

Let the morning mist 
Plant dew drop kisses upon
Wounds of yesterday

Let the noon day sun
Kiss your ground sweeping branches
With wild abandon

Beautiful yellow flowers
Graceful and refined
Cleave to bended boughs

Love Like A Mighty Oak

you dried all my tears
i stand proud now like the oak---
no weeping willow

your splendid branches
wrap me into your shadow---
shelter from the storm

wind blows me down
your light lifts me up---
might i dwell in your arms?

Haiku Calendar

Haiku Calendar 
(January to December in the Southern part of the U.S.A.)

snow and more snow falls 
cold wind and more cold wind blows 
all branches are bare 

starving and weak birds 
a chill grips before sunrise 
fall from bare branches 

warm afternoon wind 
thin morning ice melts on pond 
a song bird is heard 

poppies hide in grass 
drink from early morning showers 
bees drink from open buds 

warm ruffles new weeds 
clover covers budding ground 
crickets find their song 

hawk hunts small rabbit 
green hedges give good cover 
blood drips on clover 

sun waves off dark soil 
flowers grow only in shade 
bees hive drips sweet wax 

in shade cow chews cud 
waits for dark to find water 
sleeps on top of mound 

east winds pull cool rain 
quinces bright hill flowers thirst 
streams roar then fall quite 

squirrel hides acorn 
digs hole at foot of oak tree 
barks at gray wet sky 

leaf fall from elm tree 
vacant bird nest are exposed 
geese sound over head 

deer move over trail 
fawns loose baby spots and jump 
graze on holly leafs

Haiku 4 - flowering weed, dancing leaf, life force

at the roadside
solitary flowering weed
vision of loveliness

leaf falling from the tree
does its last dance in the air
then settles to the ground

in the crack in the concrete
the grass pushes upwards
unstoppable life force

the  tree  limbs  respond 
    to the beckoning w i n d s . . . come
dance with us awhile

Searchin' for sneaky monkey
Hidin' in a tree

"He TOOK my cage keys!"

All Creatures Big and Small

In his wisdom God
Created all creatures with
Deep love and purpose


Beautiful bird perched
on tree limb under moon's glow
elegantly dressed


Clouds rest on tree tops
lumpy feather beds billow
horses graze in snow
Jan. 24, 2007


Proud bird perched so high
silently viewing the world
We await his song
Dec. 23, 2007


Sun and humming birds
mingle while rainbows arch high
drawing eyes skyward


Tiger baths his wounds
cold water soothes like medicine
he will fight again
October 1, 2007


In him peace abides
Little fellow young and free
God's true gift to me

Naked, Shivering

there… solitary
on the street corner she stands
naked, shivering

Note:  Sorry, but there's no mystery here.  There is a little oak tree on the street corner (I've taken photos of her since her leaves began to change colors).  Then two days ago after a long, cold rain, all her leaves were gone!

The Tree and The Wind

The wind rage furious
Howling and blowing madly
Tree swayed clinging tight

Her leaves flew away
Carried by the mighty wind
Plucked off untimely

How ruthless the wind
Taking away her green leaves
At their tender age

Now that storm has passed
The sun is shining brightly
A new hope is born

The lone tree stand tall
Bare and naked stripped of leaves
Basking in the sun

Fall Opens the Door

Fall Opens the Door  (Haiku)

morning sun dapples
trees in a  polka-dot dress
shines soft green and light

chill hint of autumn
smells of summer, loam, and pause
visions of winter

sap returns from leaves
to store deep in the tree heart
yellow, red, orange, burnt

blowing gently in the breeze

this hummingbird has been hanging around all season, at first i thought it was simply due to the feeders. after doing some lawn maintenance today, i saw it entering a hollowed out gourd i put in my peach tree last summer. i figure, s/he is now part of the estate, may as well give it a name: calypso.

The Windfall

The maple tree leaf
	Sheens of white upon them lay....
		Crystalline manna

Grass lying beneath
	Sticky to tennis shoe sole....
		small sounds as I walk

The diligent bee
	gathering, gathering, fast....
		Quiets at twilight.

Some would not return to the hive.  
Too heavy to fly,
to far to crawl.  
I’m sure they will die...

Inspired by a hive of hornets, deluging
a huge maple tree in my back yard, 
which is weeping sap from the leaves.

Lessons From The Leaves and The Tree I

Lessons From The Leaves and The Tree I
( Life's Journey)

Life was beautiful
for all the leaves in the tree
in spring and summer

They flourished and bloomed
under the warm summer sun
and sweetest spring rain

Their color brightened
to a lovely shade of green
that glowed with beauty

Flowering blossoms
from the buds of the fruit tree
brought joy and delight

Little birds would peck
as they sit on the branches
on the lush green leaves

It was the best time
of their lives atop the tree
filled with happiness

But life has seasons
that never stay all the time
they come and they go

Spring and summer passed
autumn came and its cold winds
changing all the leaves

Turning their color
from bright green to brown and red
yellow and orange

Their brightness faded
their loveliness spent and gone
making them pale and weak

How seasons changed them
tempering all their nature
through adversities

Winter will arrive soon
and do her task of sweeping
the bough of the tree

The faded leaves will go
and leave the tree to herself
to make room for spring

When new leaves will grow
to replace those that have gone
in the cold winter

In such a lifetime
they have gone through all seasons
in smooth and rough times

That is how life goes
for all the leaves in the trees
in the cycle of life

God's Blessing

The maple tree leaf

Grass lying beneath

		Quiets at twilight.

Some would not return to the hive.  
Too heavy to fly,
too far to crawl.  
I’m sure they will die...
