Breathing in, I smile
Tree’s marvelous out-breath, air
Our deep roots entwined
maple, mahogany & redwood
gunwales & paddle
old saw mill
sturdy hammock support
palms brush clouds
cypress’ golden gate view
bodhisattva in pine hall
earth to sky
power to warm

Thanks for your kind words, Jeff. 100 posts, years in the making!
Wow! and congrats on your 100 posts!
tree hugger! wonderful.
Great pics! 🙂
I was, just yesterday, in a heavily wooded area along a river. The trees were very majestic, towering, and incredible! But i didn’t hug any… there’s a lot of poison ivy in our area! 😉
Fortunately there was no poison oak along the tree, although plenty along forest’s trail. Thanks for your kind comment, and happy, itch-less hiking!
Congratulations on your 100 post, hope to see many many, more.
you’re very kind. i’m happy to make one at a time, and with good fortune they will add up. best wishes on your muse.
Thanks for the beautiful Haiku and pictures! I love the idea of feeling connected to trees through our breath.
thanks for your kind comment. it’s both poetic and a scientific reality.
