Photo Haiku – Tree Series 2

backlit by the sun
red samaras hang in pairs
wings for future flight

notches of red, stain
Dogwood’s purity of white
a blue sky morning
new needles clustered
bursting buds of Tamarack
thriving in the bog
soft, pink-white petals
attracting bees to anthers
Sand Cherry blossoms

  1. Dad! Loved the line in your haiku about the samaras:
    “wings for future flight.” Very cool! Then I looked up “samara” to find out more, and found this:

    “A samara is sometimes called a key, and is often referred to as a whirlybird, helicopter, whirligig, polynose, or, in the north of England, a spinning Jenny.”

    “During the autumn months, they are a popular source of amusement for children who enjoy tossing them in the air and watching them spin to the ground.”

    I remember doing that with you, Father Nature! ; )
    I thought you'd get a kick out of that.

    Love,

  2. Now I have one more reason to stay up half the night, LOL. But it is sure worth it!(I am even getting better at typing those “wobbley” works to prove that I am not a robot!
