Haiku Heights Prompt: Pine

happy in its flaws,
safe from saws in December
twisted pine still grows

***

pine sparks dance, sizzle
snapping ladder to night sky
supplanting pale stars

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  1. Great post! I have a post here that us like you to read: http://bulletinamaelstrom.wordpress.com/2012/05/19/a-memory-in-the-rain/
    It’s got a photograph and an accompanying poem, both by me.
    Comment and tell me what you think. 🙂

    Perhaps it’s twistedness spared the poor sprout.

    • Thanks Ramesh–I just read yours (beautifully done, btw), and I think we were trying to suggest some of the same feeling/impression. Thanks for checking my haiku out!
