Bonsai

Pruned and stunted shrub
Snipped and bent for beauty or

Love your Haiku. They seem to be true Haiku and not of the movement that seems to be prevalent on OSI. I have always used the old forms.
Your site is great and your images sharp and clear.

I enjoyed this. Your last line adds that special touch to this arrangement.
