An exceptional Haiku, Ann. For me, it expresses a tenuous thread between hope (tomorrow's leafy bounty) with the reality of forest loss. But I may be off base in my reading. What a stellar write! Sincerely, Brian

Thank you, Sam. I actually saw a photo of this very thing in, I think, Life Mag. years ago. It made an impression.

Where the tree falls..That's where it lies Anne.' Look at the birds of the air they Are fed, because existence is it is.' No man has apprehended all that Lies in store For those who are of God's Purchase'

Thanks, Andrea. Years ago, in Life Mag., I think, there was a picture of a bird doing exactly that. Its message of hope has stayed with me.
