Tree Commune


Trees @ The Botanical Gardens in SF - Taken by Me

Tree Commune
a series of haiku

rooted in Mother Nature
a diverse species
hugging limbs

kissing blue skies
sharing the wind's breath
mingling leaves

born within earth
standing free
a natural commune

Trees are so inspiring! What a pretty grouping, and your poems capture their commune- ication.

Diane AZ said...

A beautiful haiku moment! We are all rooted in mother nature and like the trees can embrace each others differences.

Very nice photo and verse.

A natural commune indeed, when condition is in equilibrium. Invasiveness which is prevalent in certain species will make corrections along the way... ~bangchik

You really are becoming better with this form.

Lovely haiku, Jo. This post reminded me of a house garden where I used to live. A blossom tree's branches surrounded an evergreen and each spring the green tree looked as though it was in the frothy pink arms of its neighbour. Then new people moved in and cut down the blossom tree. I did so regret that I never got a phot of that.

Shark, I like that commune-ication :) They are very inspiring for me. I've decided my next life I want to come back as a tree.

Diane, well said and the message of the poem. Thank you.

Thank you Chuck.

Bang, very eloquent indeed :)

Thank you Brittany

Silent Poet, thanks so much for the compliment. I love the form so I am practicing daily.

Jakill, I cannot stand seeing a tree cut down. I'm glad you had a glimpse of the tree and memories, even without a photo. Thanks.

so nice to see trees with green leaves on them. My favorite of the haiku is the last one.

Beautiful words. I love that group of trees. I get the feeling they are 'talking' to each other.

Hello this tree post reminds me of the trees found in one of the cold places here in our country, Baguio. The trees may not be exactly the same but it gives me the feeling of being warm and serene!

By the way I just posted a couple of awards for you :-)
