Sometimes everything has to be enscribed across the heavens so you can find the one line already written inside you. Sometimes it takes a great sky to find that small, bright, and indescribable wedge of freedom in your own heart. David Whyte

Haiku: Then There Were Three

on December 3, 2016

One in each corner
Trees grace gray stone patio
Squirrels summer playground

Autumn leaves glory
Arched cathedral of beauty
Warmth before winter

Noise of buzz-saw
Sounding grave interruption
Felled one dying tree

View from my window
Surprising inheritance
Broad city-scape scene

    Autumn will soon leave us but we will still have your beautiful words here xx

  3. Beautiful images of what these trees have meant and despite the tragedy of losing one, the hope of what is in its place.
