Posts Tagged ‘winter trees’

trees for mannequin     

The winter trees are bleak and bare,
   Stripped by the fingers cold
That came along and left them nude,
   Like shorn sheep in a fold. 

In nature’s wide department store,
   In windows on display,
They stand as naked mannequins
   In their undressed array. 

But world will wake one day to see
   A sight astonishing –
The shiv’ring trees with leaves once more,
   Dressed wondrously by Spring.

I wrote this while eating lunch in a cafe recently.  My
mind, for some reason, could not come up with the word
“mannequin”.  I asked Crystal, my waitress, and she
gave it to me immediately and I was able to finish the
the poem before I left.  I decided later to name it with
the word I couldn’t remember.  Thanks, Crystal!

English: Winter tree on the B6270

Sorry, Mr. Wind

Winter trees
No gloves to play catch –
Leaves fallen.

A Highway Sign

Temp: 40.
“Watch For Ice On Bridge”

Weather Clue

Strong south wind
On the day before
A norther.

On The Road Again

Forgot pad;
Six haiku written
