Above is a photo I took yesterday of a curious sign of life on our dormant Full Moon Maple Tree. Below is a haiku inspired by the photo. Please share a haiku that comes to you as you view the photo. (A traditional haiku is 3 lines: 5 syllables, 7 syllables and 5 syllables.) Below the haiku, is another view of the greenery on the maple tree.

A mobile leaf greens

Its way up a barren twig:

Glorious masquerade.

P.S. If you or someone you know are in need of a ceremony (wedding, memorial service, etc.), please see my new Ceremonies page.

    The fallen leaf
    Reborn- Transformed
    Ascends to it’s Maker’s Throne

    You are dearly missed my friend.

    Plant or animal
    Or does it matter at all
    Simply beautiful

    Having crawled tip top
    Just sit? Spread shield into wings?
    Choice – life altering

    Gorgeous pics, Scott!

    Arms grasping, hugging –
    Knowing this path has ended.
    Time to fly away.
