“A Season of Trees,” #haiku sequence

This haiku sequence is for dVerse (Frank Tassone is hosting) and for Tanka Tuesday using the inspirational theme quote from Sue Vincent:

“Trees are sanctuaries. Whoever knows how to speak to them, whoever knows how to listen to them, can learn the truth.”

Herman Hesse

I like to create haiku sequences dedicated to a theme, or to share a narrative of some sort, or to reinforce a central idea. Haiku are perfect for longer form stanza poetry.

skeleton bare trees
ebony sky silhouettes
winter's artistry
a lace of new leaves
encircles a sparrow's nest
rosy blossoms fall
silk-soft leaves of green
touch the cerulean sky
summer melodies
Autumn leaves foretell
dryad secrets faint whisper
only death brings truth
