Forest Haiku

winter forest
light of the rising sun
passes straight through

 

needle litter
carpeting the forest floor
copper clean

 

straight trunks
standing tall and tidy
lack character

 

spring brings blossoms
but how can the trees trust
spring sometimes lies

 

the gnarled tree
stunted and deformed
stands post-storm
