Misty Rose Bush

My sweet and talented cousin wrote a very beautiful haiku and wanted to share it. She is a very busy lady right now as she is working hard on her college degree and completing an internship. However, she will be struck by a creative burst of writing when time allows and so here she is in her own words:

Kathy’s Haiku: Sheltering Friends

Sheltering my friend

Like Jesus told us to do

Love I try to send.

The Tree’s Four Seasons

Spring brings new, gleaming green life to the bare and lonely tree,

The tree waves in the gentler wind, happy as the leaves bud free,

Summer brings the sun which shines on its beautiful carpet of leaves,

Autumn brings the most brilliant yellows, reds, and pumpkin oranges

Just before the mean winds of November come to blow causing the glorious leaves to tumble,

Rakes and blowers noisily and greedily scoop up the beauty as people grumble,

All winter long, the tree is bare and lonely without its friends, its precious leaves,

It may even lose a few of its limbs as the ice and snow weighs the sad tree down,

The tree awaits the promise of warmer days, and the bird’s song, hurry Spring,

So the leaves will once again cover it happily, like a gorgeous green gown.
