Forest Pathway

Our theme for this Haiku Monday is pathways. A tough assignment from One Deep Breath! Here is my entry this week:

forest pathway strewn

with hail beckons

through the trees...

They say you can break the rules (5-7-5, or 17 syllables, or...), but this may have gone too far! See today's other post for more photos of Friday's unconventional weather.

So here's a more conventional haiku, following up on last week's assignment:

blessings on the land

in a healthy quenching rain:

Earth sighs in relief.

Two wonderful Haiku's and the photo is splendid. The rest of your photo's are remarkable; winter's crispness in June.

both are wonderful haikus! such an inviting trail too.

I like the 5-4-3 pattern. It's like an upsidedown word triangle. Nicely done and both are lovely. I can hear the rumbling sigh of the earth.

Gorgeous! Another pathway:

Change follows lightning
Rivulets dry in the sun
meandering trails

Hmmm - perhaps the lovely and talented Cat Lady would like to post her entries in our comments at One Deep Breath? More talent is always welcome. You don't have to have a blog :)

I'm a forest nut and I loved the photo. "Earth sighs in relief" was brilliant!
