Writing With Gibran - Trees . August 16, 2014

Here's todays quote from "Sea and Foam" on Carpe Diem Haiku Kai:
[...] "Trees are poems that the earth writes upon the sky. We fell them down and turn them into paper that we may record our emptiness". [...]

[...] "If you reveal your secrets to the wind you should not blame the wind for revealing them to the trees". [...]

rustling leaves
the trees gossip with the wind
at lake Garda

tall sentinels
guarding the park's entrance
except for the wind

towering cypress
all along the shaded lane
a Tuscan farm house

a wooded garden
in the centre a fountain
wood nymph's paradise

G.s.k. '14


  1. Wow! Georgia what a gorgeous series of haiku ... really nicely written. That first haiku is a masterpiece ...

    1. Thanks Kristjaan once again for your wonderful encouragement.

  2. Such a wonderful series -- but I especially liked the second one -- the sentinels keeping back everything except the wind! :)

    1. I liked that one as well ... well to tell the truth I like them all ... but that one reminds me of the forbidding huge trees we have in some of our parks here ... but they're not much at being wind breakers.


harmonious words ... like crystal clear water ... pure ectasy
