Whispering trees #haibun

For Colleen’s weekly challenge .

Tell me Redwood
Your secrets gathered over centuries
The beauty you’ve seen
And the sorrows you’ve weathered
Can you show me, old willow
How long you have loved
And how lonely you have been
Each leaflet a tale
Each branch a lesson

Verdant forest glades
Filled with eucalyptus dreams
Colour me dazzled

Those aphrodisiac delights
Beneath hydrangea, maple and myrtle
Flavours of home
The wind singing through pines
Mahogany, shading down relief
Each flower a memory
Each root, hope

Soft wondering breeze
Cool messenger of the trees
Scented with deep truths


Colleen’s theme prompt chosen by Sue for this week is a quote;

Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them can learn the truth

~Herman Hesse~

I hope you enjoy this
Stay safe, stay loving.
