Tired trees

#Haiku Happenings #2: Jane Dougherty’s #haikai -esque poem!

Jane Dougherty Writes

Tired trees

The touch of the sun,
yellow as the pendulous leaves
of the box elder.

Boughs bent, not sagging,
it bows gracefully
beneath the weight

of too much, too long,
to give its child-leaves
less far to fall.
