Haiku-a-day: day 45 of 365

Haiku…

Woeful winter trees:
their bashful, naked branches
mourn their long lost leaves


Inspiration… The copious number of trees that I can see through the window, at work, acts as the focal point of today’s Haiku. I though I would (sorry no pun intended there) continue with the theme of nature.

About Sean

I live in my own thoughts, chat to imaginary friends, and survive primarily on Snickers and Nescafe. I work full-time and study part-time for a BA in English Literature with the OU. Home is the North West of England, and my heroes are those authors that can make miracles out of paper and words…… “The man who does not read has no advantage over the man who cannot read.” – Mark Twain.

    This is lovely, Sean. It is the second poem about leafless trees that I’ve read today! The first poem was written by John Updike for A Child’s Calendar. I can’t find the text online, so here is a link to my friend’s post, should you wish to check it out: http://mkatchris.blogspot.com/2014/12/the-beauty-of-bone.html
