Departure # 12

__I wrote this when I was seventeen, October, 1960. I think now, we are all looking for the first two lines of the third stanza; the change cycles continue... unchanged. _m

*Rose Red Trees*

Rose red trees
Flecked with gold,
The colors of clans
From legends old.

Warmed by the sun
Through a bitter fall day,
Withered by cold
And wafted away.

Then green we see
In season's sun,
To rose red again
Life's cycle run.

Very nice haiku.

the sun
is a rose
is


(Nothing to do with, but "is" in Swedish = "ice", and "Ice" in Finnish = "jää" meaning also "staying" .-)

deep enough for a 17-y-o, and it still has merit :)

__Thanks Polona and Tikkis... I certainly appreciate your views.
__Bob, I know the haiku of which you speak... my comment at your bird photo blog. I'll leave it here too.

her profile to this lens
the shabow

You were born with a gift, Magyar. I love the marriage of life cycles with nature's cycles. Lovely!

the long ago poem
reflections of youthful days
swirling visions stir

remember the day
bitter cold colors of light
i almost forgot

Very nice, Magyar. It's good to revisit one's old work...

You would not want to see what I wrote at seventeen.
It is so nice that you can look back on your work.
