Haiku Five

Old dead pine tree
Lighting strike splits trunk in half
Many left homeless

    Great sympathy for the tiny insects living inside... I liked the thought process cause typically when I think of "lightning in the woods" what first comes to mind is forest fires... but you took a new and different approach on it. Cool!
