Dogwoods Rebirth (haiku)*

tender buds break skin~

Spring awoke yawned stretching limbs~

opens eyes to blooms


*Note: The photos were taken by me yesterday. It was a rainy cloudy day. However here on my little piece of mountain top nature begins its rebirth. The dogwood is a beautiful tree in each season ( except winter when it’s mournfully bare). I’ve chose this music for its lovely sound, tribute to Spring and the beautiful flowers in the video.


Invisible Path (haiku)*

atmosphere moves shifts~

days thoughts hang as heavy fog~

awaits clarity


*Note: The photo was taken today by me, of a mountain trail that runs outside my back door. This song fits the mood. Also I enjoy this cover version

The original is a song written by Canadian singer-songwriter Neil Young, recorded in 1971 but not released until 2007 on the album Live at Massey Hall 1971.


Lamentations (haiku)*

practiced acceptance~

surrenders heart in a song~

unrequited love


*Note: I’ve chosen for your Listening pleasure Chantal Chamberland’s rendition of Don’t Explain

Don’t Explain” is a song written by jazz singer Billie Holiday and Arthur Herzog Jr. recorded by Decca Records in 1944.


Woman (haiku)*

sustains life within~

fragile, perpetual strength~

that plus so much more


*Note: For all my sisters world wide, Happy International Woman’s Day. I hope that you tap all the links. Together we rise. πŸŒŽβœŒπŸ»πŸ’—

This was the woman’s march in Chicago. It brought me a sense of peace, hope and unity.

Ladies please tap the link, you are this, oh yes and truly beautiful πŸ€—πŸ˜˜

Nature Recycles (haiku)*

roots once bound to earth~

time’s artistry in decay~

supports soft green growth

Trees are majestic and beautiful, also necessary. Trees Improve Our Air Quality. Urban forests help to improve our air quality. Heat from the earth is trapped in the atmosphere due to high levels of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other heat-trapping gases that prohibit it from releasing the heat into space. … Young trees absorb CO2 at a rate of 13 pounds per tree each year. I hope that you enjoyed listening to this instrumental, Requiem for a Tree.
