Tree #haiku

wild cacophony
a living emerald tower
combing the blue sky

*

leaf fresh breeze
order in chaos
the world’s lungs

These were written for Colleen’s weekly poetry challenge. Today we were to use the words Green and Morass, but could only use synonyms. I wrote two haikus, one the “old fashioned” 5-7-5 form, the other in 3-5-3 form.

The photo is my backyard in New Hampshire.

      Thanks, Resa! If you look out my front window, I am in the middle of a village, but if you look out back, I seem to be a million miles away… I do wish our species could give up that smoking habit and let the trees do their job!
