A Lone Tree – Chained Haiku – December 20, 2014

Winter_tree_by_NickKoutoulas

alive
in a snow glaring field
stands a tree

misty thoughts
of years ago when others stood
pass through its rings

memories
of moving life and swaying friends
long past

in the distance
lights cover the valley
a singing wind

alive
on a lone tree in an empty field
a sparrow lands
