    Wrapped up in plastic
    The brown pages kept from the air
    Afraid of crumbling

    So many stories
    Hist’ry in books, magazines
    Written on earth’s trees

    We,also earth’s trees
    Molded and shaped human beings
    Turn again to dust

    Sweet creative sap
    Embracing all seasons – Flow
    Stand in consciousness

    WoW...Ty 4 making me stretch...

    Stark limbs of winter
    The branches lost all feeling
    Iced quills lie in wait

    And then comes the thaw
    Rainbow buds are blossoming
    In petals of ink

    Refuge from the sun
    The willow weeps as it reads
    His emotive words

    Anticipating...
    Magenta leaves cascade down
    My journal awaits...

    wow watz.....

    Watzinaname WOW
    beautiful the haiku gleams
    trees shudder with joy

    each stanza rings bold
    so many colors unfold
    your pen sprinkles seeds

    i loved your stretching
    the thought and care of the piece
    earth trees are at peace

    wow watzinaname
    we all await your journal
    anticipating........

    Deepy, your haiku skills amaze...

    A breeze blows gently
    A page out of her journal
    opens, and it reads

    There are those poets
    With shovels at the ready
    Often... they dig deep

    Turning the rich soil
    Planting the seeds, then waiting
    For spring to arrive

    Other scribes take root
    Sensing that it's time to grow
    Compelled to flourish
