Fantasia For Toads?

ancient tree stands proud
winter gales lay bare its soul
branch and bough shiver

bare boned skeleton creaks out a tarantella

flirting fallen leaves
ape dancing ghosts of footsteps
from another world

To see the inspiration for this patchwork post, go and read what it should be like on the IGWRT blog! I apologise for not being able to follow its instructions to the letter, but hope Toads will forgive me for following where my nose, and muse, led me...

  1. How wonderful that you were inspired to write haiku by reading Shawnacy's fine work on RT. The images you selected are as beautiful as the words.
