    I feel the same way about haiku. It does feel like you’ve accomplished something, and photos really add to the experience! I was searching my own photo archives for something to put up with my “be a tree” poem and I couldn’t find anything. Your photo is exactly what I was looking for! I love it! I feel like going out and taking some tree shots right now! But it’s raining…and my son has chicken pox… ah well, another day.
