Five Forest Haiku
Come Sit With Me and Share Some Poetry
This short note is an invitation to you, dear reader. Grab a glass of cold water, iced tea, or lemondade. Then, sit in the shade of the summer canopy that keeps the forest path pleasantly cool.
I have some haiku to share with you. Haiku are short nature poems composed of three lines each. They were inspired by a walk along a botanical garden path, which passed some of my favorite spots. Come sit and enjoy some poetry with me, sweet one.
