I was up in the Lincoln National Forest a couple of weeks ago and thought of this Haiku about a very beautiful and venerable cedar tree I shared some time with. I sat beneath this marvel playing Robert Visee's Bouree several times to the accompaniment of the breeze singing sweetly through its boughs. I love trees.

Older then any human

Always saluting the rising sun

With green fingers raised high
