Voyeur of the Forest #photography #poem


trees breathe life

spring gives birth to nature

a constant song

*

mesmerized I sit

doe cares for her speckled young

my backyard

tree haiku

 

Older than the trees

each year new life

ancient wisdom

Thanks to Managua Gunn who is ghost writing for Carpe Diem today.

He speaks of the forest, the life and healing there and asks that we let the forest inspire our writing.

I am fortunate to each day be inspired by the forest in my back yard.

(I spent Saturday morning watching two young very speckled fawn skipping about the back, while the mother took a snooze.)

What does the forest inspire in your creative spirit???

won’t you come and see
loneliness? Just one leaf
from the kiri tree


Cedar umbrellas, off
to Mount Yoshimo for
the cherry blossoms

and thank you for the words of Basho timeless in meaning and inspiration…

  1. I have bathed in the clear spring on Maui, my creek however is not something I would bathe in.
    I do not see deer often but I do like your idea of old wisdom and new life – trees and fawns are enchanting.

    Thanks for stopping by my CD post I’m a tad behind…seems like always.
    And today my little ones are coming for a visit. And while the younger one does nap – the older one does not! I’ll need a nap when they leave. 🙂
