“Change,” A Quadrille

The full cold moon
  abides the darkness of night
  where moonbeams light up the sky 
  with silver little-girl dreams,
  to remind us of how most things 
  never stay the same.
  Change is the catalyst. 
  Follow your intuition to find
  your correct path to joy.

“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
