Mt. Rental Haiku

Mt. Rental Haiku …











Weathered old wood bench

with painted rocks in a line

hold firm to our ground


A wind blown playhouse

fallen into shred of roof

time stacked in a pile


Moved to these mountains

where the weather is raw

up in swaying pine


sits Tonka dump truck

still and silent in the dirt

under shade from sage


these signs of living

quiet in the harsh and wild

trails to the beyond


sheds by the snow line

packed to rafter with box

a footfall to place


We wait for birth

holding onto sturdy land

a place where brush grows

    I love the way this puts us right there in the surrounding, wild countryside, along with its past life shown with such well-chosen words, just enough to paint a clear picture of past and present. Well done Jamie!
