Haikus are easy
Tools make me so uneasy
What do pliers do?

Hemlock life and death

Hemlocks die standing
Gasping fish die now below
in once cool water

Grateful Respiration

Breathe the forest air
Exchange molecules gladly
Give thanks in your way

Aspirations

Let your children climb
and fall in love with a tree
making their own world

Not exactly Haiku but within the same vein nonetheless. Not about trees either but something we all depend on regardless, including trees. Besides, I'm all snowed in today!

Winter cube
Spring rivulets of
Summer pool,
Fall on rising mist ...

Very nice, I like that very much.

Here are two of my favorite Haiku, by Masaoka Shiki:
