giant tree
standing guard
in my ruined backyard

rose bush
overrun by shoots
catches my sleeve

Oh Daver, you've got to love those "giant" majestic trees! It can't guard you so much when it comes to "overrun' rose bushes. Good thing you were wearing long sleeves!:) Have a great week!!! Love, Mikki

Daver, thank you for the wonderful comment.. your haiku's, are proceeded in the back hands of your time.. i hope no one got hurt.. i'm beginning to think you live in a bad neighborhood. I'm glad your tree can be protecting when least expected.. enjoyed.... have yourself a very wonderful day ;-) LINDA
