Haiku my heart - tree

the view you must have
against blue sky and water
roots firmly attached

I took this picture overlooking the bay.  I just loved how this tree was leaning into its environment.
Hoping everyone has a lovely weekend- for many of us a much needed three day weekend!
I plan on doing lots and lots of cleaning... and hopefully some art!

Please check out the lovely Rebecca's blog,
Recuerda mi corazon
and get linked to all of the other
Friday Haikuers... (I think I just made that word up.)
Find a photo and join in the creativity!

Very appropriate for a lesson in life, to have the roots firmly planted that is. Funny how much this photo looks like the view on the Great Lake Superior. When you are near the West end of the great lake, you can see Minnesota from Wisconsin and vice versa. LOve the water and your words.

we too need to have our roots attached and view the sky : )
Love the photo - makes me yearn for the water.

I love the way you've personified the tree in your haiku. He leans out, confidently, able to see beauty, because his roots are planted deep.

Reminds me of this verse, "He will be like a tree planted by the water that sends out its roots by the stream. It does not fear when heat comes; its leaves are always green. It has no worries in a year of drought and never fails to bear fruit."

All the best, Boonie

Like a shield protecting beauty. Beautiful photo and beautiful words!

Must be something in the air -- I'm feeling the urge to clean and organize. I've been reaching for the sky as well.

Yes, deeply rooted trees can extend themselves generously and graciously over blue water. Lovely haiku. Have a great weekend!
