At the early dawn

The birds chirp and sing their songs

Waking up our world


Crystal clear droplets

Refracting the morning light

Graceful and untouched


Trees fall in tandem

No human listens but the

Living forest does


White winter freezes 

Over the land in a shell

Silence takes over

As life takes a needed break

So the land can become pure

This is a small series of haikus and a tanka that I wrote centered around singular moments in nature.
