A haiku Anthology - trees

leaf litter posted each autumn- tree greetings trees laid bare exposed each autumn- squirrels dreys treecreeper on woodland depends- small copses tulip trees rosewood mahogney- history monkey trees evergreen woonders- enigmas tinder bark silver birch paper— woodsmen know sycamore an old invader— summer shade proud and tall not phased by winter— Norway spruce the mighty oaks home to many— oceans sailed bare scratches spring sap sweet tasty— trees bleed too winter storm trees turn to whistles— squirrels dance leaf litter the spoils of autumn— the trees rest

Love the line: trees turn to whistles! I love trees!

Not a metaphor, which I know I am oft guilty of using in haiku. It is a daunting experience being in a wood on a windy day at any time, but when it catches a hole/hollow the tree really does whistle. So loud and unexpected, startled me the first time, in fact, the only time. I love trees too, 26 species in my garden.
