A Walk in the Park

My first Haiku poem

Photo by Rasheed Hooda

Evergreen trees tell me
Life is always beautiful
Just look around you

Creek is in full flow
Flowers will be blooming soon
And birds are singing

Take a walk outside
Be one with nature again
Smell the aroma

Oh, what happened here?
Brown leaves scattered all around
Did the tree just die?

Amazing nature
You never know how it works
When it's time, it's time

Creek is still flowing
The roots are firmly planted in
Why did you dry out?

Dead tree reminds me
God creates and God removes
Spring is 'round corner

I usually write poetry as thoughts flow into my mind. I haven’t studied it so I don’t know about various styles. My son explained the 5–7–5 syllable structure of haiku, so I tried it here. This was created from the notes I took on my phone as I walked through my favorite nature park where I am. Thanks for reading.

If you’d like to read my other poems, here are a couple you might enjoy.
