Haiku Friday

Your challenge: write a haiku featuring one of the subjects discussed here in the past seven days: moving forests to accommodate climate change or something from Monday's nature quote. Feel free to mine the comments, too.

Post your haiku in the comments, below. Remember the pattern of a haiku is:

First, 5 syllables,
the second line has seven.
And 5 at the end.

Go ahead! Haiku!

  1. Military lines
    of identical trees
    forest plantation

    Head off those sword ferns.
    Get along now, old cedar!
    Moving the forest?

  2. Intricate networks
    Everything arranged just so
    Changes affect all.

  4. Hiya Kim,
    See, it's not so difficult, huh? It's good brain exercise to fit something into a fixed pattern...the 5/7/5 in this case. So I figure that everyone posting on Haiku Friday will keep an agile brain!

  5. Connected we are
    All creatures on this planet
    Whether big or small

  7. The forest train is here
    Its wagons overflowing with loam
    Roots trailing the rails.

  8. We could move the woods;
    Better we went back in time,
    Lived simply, humbly.

  9. Birnam Wood do come
    creeping north to castle wall
    hot times for Macbeth

    Hot times for our woods
    Carry transplants farther north
    Southern woods do flee

    Hot times for our woods
