LikeLike Reply Stunning! 🙂 LikeLike Reply Thanks! LikeLike Reply ‘Limbs catch stars like fire flies’ I love that line!♥ And I guess that’s the tree at night? I’ve always adored trees with lights on, nothing more magical at night time, than a tree all lit up! If only they came naturally with lights – can you imagine a whole forest aglow, with tree lights!! 😀 LikeLike Reply Oh, that would be a human-fairy land.

LikeLike Reply Thanks, Professor! LikeLike Reply Three lines of words and one beautiful picture forms instantly in my mind – great one. LikeLike Reply Thanks!! I’m glad I managed to convey the picture in my head. LikeLike Reply Brenda, that’s a great tree, so seasonal. It is exactly what my wife wanted when we lived in Northern Virginia. I never quite got it right. The pictures clearly show it being done right. Thanks, Bill LikeLike Reply Just take several days to string the lights. 🙂 This was at a posh mall. LikeLike Reply Lovely words lovely pictures. I do hope you didn´t have to put all those lights by your own. LikeLike Reply No, LOL. I’m far too lazy (or busy). 🙂 LikeLike Reply Good to be busy and lazy both at the same time. LikeLike Reply LOL LikeLike Reply True, scientifically proven. They say it´s good for the body and mind to take a nap every day, and taking a nap means not doing anything being lazy. Not me saying it, some smart guy from Harvard. Do they pay these people to study the effects of napping? I want that job. LikeLike Reply I’d rather be in the study, and part of the proof that a daily nap improves my health. 🙂 LikeLike Actually that´s smarter….should´ve thought about that myself. LikeLike Feel free to join in. We”l just skip checking in with the scientist. 😉 LikeLike Lovely black and white contrast! LikeLike Reply Thanks! LikeLike Reply You’re welcome 🙂 LikeLike Reply so pretty LikeLike Reply Thanks, Beth! LikeLike Reply Thats the kind of tree which the Vampire Bat loves 😀 Btw, I have studied that Haiku has 3 lines & 17 syllables. Is that mandatory? LikeLike Reply Some feel the syllable count is too strict. The haiku was Japanese, and probably had more to do with characters not syllables. I think the three lines is pretty common, though. LikeLike Reply I never get to read Haiku outside the blogging world. Not really a followed style of poetry here 🙂 LikeLike Reply I like how the limited word count is forcing my writing into shorter lines with more careful word choice. Not only is Haiku beautiful itself, but the process of writing it has improved my writing (I hope). 🙂 Each word gets to shine. LikeLike Reply Yes, I guess I myself like that format after reading a lot of them 🙂 LikeLike Reply Why not give it a whirl? They are meant to be nature-oriented and two separate images united and enhanced by a third image, is what I have read, but plenty of people break those rules. 🙂 LikeLike Let see. Our most usual concept of poems is like having four lines which form a paragraph! 😀 I don’t write any poetry though 🙂 LikeLike You could if you wanted. 🙂 LikeLike May be, some day! 😀 LikeLike As long as the vampire bat will tolerate chewing his words finely. 🙂 LikeLike Too much patience is just one of the Vampire Bat’s vices. So one can only wait and see what comes next 😀 LikeLike Your tree is magical! 🙂 LikeLike Reply Thanks! Looks amazing lit, doesn’t it? LikeLike Reply Comments welcome!
