Haiku My Heart is a wonderful creation by a wonderful loving human being I know named Rebecca. You can read more Haiku and see more fabulous photography and art by visiting her blog, recuerda mi corazon.
Trees are like spirits
Limbs stretch for air and water
They are people too
The Sacred Earth Mother is very green this year around these parts. The deepness of the color in the fields and forests surrounding the Mississippi River bluffs in Northwestern Wisconsin have never seemed so lush and vibrant with verdant shades. The water a deep blue. The sun, golden, strong, powerful, warm, no, hot!
The trees are singing
Spreading sighs up from the ground
I like to stand near them, touch them, yes, hug them. I love the plants too. What some call weeds are life to me. Each has a task, to maybe feed or poison, but for a purpose that some might never understand. The Great Mystery.
Fruits and vegetables
Flowers beautify our lives
Neatly bunched in rows
Honoring the land today and everyday. Enjoying the season that lies in front of me now, not thinking about the one I will honor in six months. Each day, what it brings in terms of heat, light, moisture and even catastrophe, is accepted as given by a Supreme Force of being.

The berries are quickly getting ripe. Corn has tassels, (I'm up North, remember, this is a big deal!). Tomato plants haven't seen such glory in ages. Even the hot peppers are flowered to the hilt.
Casting shadows in the night
Full Moon floods the Earth
Enjoy what we have in front of us today. Look for the good in all of it. Know that even what we perceive as nuisance is necessary for a balance that is hard to understand in a crazy world. Mankind’s control is brief and fleeting compared to the hand of the Creator. I think I'll light a fire tonight. Might you stop by?
