Haiku (and a Tanka), #21

black gray brown rough smooth
branches, divide, intersect
rope swing, tree house, crooked ladder
nests, carefully hidden
so many stories live here

Sunday Afternoon Conversation with My Mom
"Twenty-two years ago
today dad died," she says.
"Seems like yesterday."

"so many stories here"

the rough and the smooth
intersections and divisions
constant love and longing

Love poems about trees! Wonderful to think about the stories a tree could tell.
