Monday Morning #Haiku 45 — Wind-sculpted Trees

Hilltop trees

On wild hilltops
lean gnarled trees tied up in knots,
padlocked by gales.

  1. I am enthralled with the diction here, Sarah, melding the natural with the synthetic of “padlocked,” which is probably my absolute favorite word choice (because of its unexpectedness), although “wild hilltops” is liltingly lovely, too. Wow times ten! Wish I had written this, and it’s a beautiful photo as well.


    • Awwww, thank you, Leigh 🙂 Such praise. I admit to being rather excited by the word padlocked when my poetry muse surprised me with it — so, yes, I experienced the unexpectedness of it,too, when it popped into my mind unbidden!


  2. Wonderful haiku, and tortured tree trunks, Sarah. 🙂

    • The more gnarled, the more interesting. I think that trees are a bit like people, in that there is a certain beauty in their older skins, although their symmetry might have gone awry.
      Blessings of the season to you, too, Cybele 🙂
