one starting maple
slender and bending in wind
how twigs become trees
Beautiful! The young shall grow!
like human children
like this one Susan.. really captured the image well 🙂
Oh, they do.. they really do.. Thanks Susan!!
And how tall they grow ~ Good one ~
Twigs becoming trees as someone else said is like the human family.
Thank you guys!
Bending to the winds of life is key…

Learning to bend when a mere twig—-comes in handy for the ancient oak! Nicely done.
they do, for the young and strong have to grow ! very nice one 🙂
Lovely and thought provoking haiku!
Twigs indeed – we are all branches of the same tree.
the twig will become strong and sturdy… boy to man likes…
Little fragile children become strong men/women in time; life goes on… till death or an ax make us fall.
Deep haiku, Susan, excellent as usual.
Have a nice Sunday.
Oh, thanks to all of you so much!
And fast. Love love love maples, have since a child, when I spent hours and hours and hours on the branches of some adolescent maple approaching young adulthood.
Oh, Nelle–you just gave me a perfect mental picture–thank you.
..from one to many, how trees grow into a forest. Love yours – ♥
regeneration is the nature in progress…beautiful haiku!
Thanks, Mama & Meenakshi!

Thank you, Don!
Beautiful haiku, Susan.
Thank you, Celestine. Yours has the weight of the end of the cycle–mine has the bend of the beginning to it. Again, so sorry for your loss.
thank you, Brud…
