Roots to Fly

image from Haiku Challenge
 A tree with strong roots
Has branches that reach out wide
And grows tall and strong

A kite on a string
Can ride the wind past tree tops
To sail to the sun

Her feet sought the ground
So that her dreams could fly free
And climb past the clouds

image from Rabbit's Den


poem submitted for Haiku Challenge, Day 22
and for Steal This Art, Week of 2/20/11

this one was very very beautiful. all three of them are poignantly crafted and present a vivid imagery. perfect!
and both the images somehow different yet compliment each other! :) well done!

Love your take on the prompt ... I take all 3 "stanzas" of Haiku as one complete work. Thank you for sharing! ~becca~

i love how you put these together for such a thoughtful image. i also love how you put the tree roots at the bottom and the clouds at the top of the post. it makes me think of the haikus as the trunk of a tree that holds in place a stairway to the sky. ^_^
