bashful branches hide
bare behind a shroud of mist
cold comfort

My response to Carpe Diem #1069 leafless trees

This is the last episode of our tribute to Jane month, which concludes with the last modern kigo of winter from Jane’s “A Dictionary of Haiku”.  Today ‘leafless trees’ is the prompt, for which we have examples of Jane’s haiku to inspire us:

from the wind
the flute lesson
of a bare tree

wood smoke

shaping the radiant bodies
of trees in winter

in the clearing

hovering a circle of trees
their halos
