Bones

GardnersToday my haiku is from November 18th of my book A Haiku Book of Days for Gardners, Tree-Huggers, and Other Nature Lovers,, one of a 7-book series. The topic for today is: “Bones”

wet leaves hide the earth
naked tree bones scratch the sky
here’s the truth at last

It’s Haiku Friday again. For the past twenty years or so, it has been my practice to write one haiku every day. Every Friday I share a haiku here, about whatever topic I happen to choose. I invite you to write a haiku on this topic too, and share it with me and the readers of this blog. Just write it in the Comments below. The only rules are: 1) your haiku must be about the named topic; 2) you must follow the 5-7-5 syllable format; 3) no obscenities or hate (I will delete those). That’s it.
