Pine




lush forest
brimming black verses, 
pining heart

~0~0

pines in the forest
flaming red in misty wild,
ink of my black pen 

~0~0

pine for the blue sky
white geese flying to the sun,
new page in my book

  1. Grace, this is amazingly beautiful. I love how the words change around in each stanza to bring forth amazing haiku. Love the final two lines especially - and the red pines - what makes them red?

    Wonderful to read first thing this weekend!

    2. I've seen a red-tinged, Christmas pine tree - turned that colour because it had died! Oh, dear - hope that wasn't the reason behind your trees, Grace. Great haiku, as ever.

  3. I love the picture so much, I had to come over to read your words. Each haiku is exquisite and I love how they are linked by colour and the pen motif.

  11. At least three of the haikus this week paid hommage to pine. Funny how these connections happen and the haikus themselves were all lovely and all so different in content and vision.
