Short Poems About Trees

Reviewing my work revealed that I often write about trees.  So I created this collection.  Hope you enjoy!

one month ends
another begins
evergreen branches
frame the night sky

tree branches
and winter white sky
poem on the page

 wind freeing the snow
from evergreen branches
waterfalls

***

sunrise
river of light
along the evergreens
the friends who stayed

***

wind uplifting
the branches of trees
sunrise

***

sunrise
small branch growing
from the old tree trunk

***

gentle spring winds
in evergreen trees
the friendship we grew

for Enola

“Gentle spring winds” was the Top Post for this blog in 2011.
The title of the post is “Haiku For Mother’s Day” (May 7, 2011).

losses in life
low setting sun
through branches of trees
now rises again
as birds quietly sing

***

patterns on my floor
moving with the breeze
sun from the West
highlights
branches of leaves

Psalm 1: 3 (KJV) :

And he shall be like a tree
planted by the rivers of water,
that bringeth forth his fruit in his season;
his leaf also shall not wither;
and whatsoever he doeth shall prosper.
