Three haiku on Trees by Sandy Sue Benitez

Maple shakes her curls
covering the naked earth
with shawls of copper


Crabapples fall hard
crashing into frosted soil
red comets on fire


Kites float in gold skies
paper leaves tied with ribbon
tree roots envious


Sandy Hiss, Wyoming, USA


These haiku are now featured on November's Festival of the Trees.
