Skeleton tree

Just playing possum
To bloom again come summer
Oh what a show off!

    We await the tricky possum to come back out and play. To show itself to us again, hopfully before May. :) Peace. :)

    You've explained it well.

    Possum pretends to be dead, as your tree is pretending to be dead. I think that is what you are saying.

    Okies next private lesson ;) ;) haiku does not use title because to use a title is like cheating, extra info can be given in a title and the point is to use 17 syllables OR LESS [regarding the 17 & the syllable count in general, it is STILL and always more important to have good content than to have the 'correct syllable count]

    just playing possum - I meant just acting as if it's dead(the tree I mean) since it's a cold season but it blooms again.

    on this one, you don't show us WHO is playing possum [lol possums actually come out in winter, a possum & a racoon sometimes sleep togther in my outdoor cats igloo! really!] I will assume you mean a flower? [a bearded tulip/rests below the hard snow-- gophers sleep]
