Pine Tree

(Image Source: http://endofthenet.org)


a lone pine
stands high among clouds
reminds me of Christmas

mountain pine
staring at the flying birds
wishes for wings

weary traveler
shares his adventures
with old pine

  2. I feel very much like your weary traveler this morning. I just wish there were a pine tree here in the desert to listen to my woes!

  8. In my country there are pine and poplars ... and that's it ... just too cold for others to survive the brutal winters ... sometime a birch tree tries but not for long ... Am I that birch tree in your life, Mr.G ... there for a little while ... then not anymore ... I miss yoy and your comments, Mr.G ... (no pressure though, just saying that I miss you ... I'll light another cigarette, I play some more with my cat ... hat ever) ... but I miss you ... Always, cat.

  9. where would the tree go if it had wings? It should stay right where it is, and listen to that traveler's tales...

  12. I do believe I would run in mortal terror if a pine tree ever sprouted wings and began to fly!

  16. aloha Green Speak. i particularly like the last ku here. i like the multiple ways i can read it. the idea of a wander having adventures with a pine and telling about it. or simply telling his adventures to the pine. either way—fun. aloha.

  18. loved all three. Very different take those were. The deep meaning stands out though the haiku was implicit. Good work :)
