Pine Trees #haiku #nature #poetry


mountain filled scent

 limbs reach toward the sky

welcome home


I don’t know what you think of when you see or smell a pine tree but I think about home. As a child, I lived in and among the pine trees. I climbed the 20 foot trees around our home and realized they aren’t a great tree for climbing.





The Carpe Diem Time Glass prompt gives a 12 hour window to write a haiku. Depending on when you check in, you may have 12 minutes. Today’s prompt is the photograph and Pine Tree.

moving time

I decided to add my drawing of the hour-glass. I am still working on it – it’s hard to get sand particles really small.

Hope the week is starting out well for you!!!

  1. I would imagine pine tree are not the best to climb…my personal favorite as a child was a pear tree that had small pears and my personal tree house in it….a place of solitude and an ever present meal. 🙂


  2. I like your words – and the hour-glass drawing is very cool – also that photo is spectacular – the purple in the sky and the whole comp. is really beautiful. have a great week. 🙂
