the beauty of a tree, said Princess Haiku

I love trees, said Princess Haiku and all that they evoke.

For example this poem "Tree" by Jane Hirshfield.

It is foolish
to let a young redwood.

Even in this
one lifetime,
you will have to choose.

That great calm being
this clutter of soup pots and books-

Already the first branch-tips brush at the window,
Softly, calmly, immensity taps at your life.
