Plant a Tree! Arbor Day is Friday, April 29th

Here is information to plant a tree in honor of  someone you care about. I took this directly from the Internet. Planting a tree seems to fit perfectly with Earth Day this month and also springtime as a good time to plant. And Arbor Day is at the end of the month. You can also go to the Arbor Day Foundation for another source to plant a tree this month in honor of Earth Day.   shop.arborday.org      ellensue

Haiku Poetry from Eileen Abrams and Planting a Tree

In our ZOOM creative writing class Eileen Abrams writes lovely haiku poetry that I am sharing with all of you.
Thanx, Eileen!

Since April is National Poetry Month, here is the first posting with a P.S. about Earth Day Every Day.

The time of year when
Brittle brown yields to supple green
Spring… doing its thing!

Tiny yellow head
Peeking out from green bonnet
Daffodil arrives!

Yellow daffodil
Wearing now a shawl of white
Hardy little soul!

Clusters of snowdrops
Dozens of them dot the banks
Of the Shortridge creek!

The time of year when
Brittle brown yields to supple green
Spring… doing its thing!

Tiny yellow head
Peeking out from green bonnet
Daffodil arrives!

Yellow daffodil
Wearing now a shawl of white
Hardy little soul!

Clusters of snowdrops
Dozens of them dot the banks
Of the Shortridge creek!

In a previous
Life – could I have been a bird?
Joyfully soaring!

Don’t need alarm clock
Bird chatter awakens me
Gracing each new day

Green buds everywhere
Bringing smiles to heavy heart
Fifty shades of green!

Mourning dove greets me
Surprise visit this morning
Kitchen window sill

Up close, personal
Its soft brown eyes meeting mine
Morning miracle

No way can the heart
Remain sealed in a tight bud
When spring whispers “come”

Spring comes to Ukraine
New growth obliterated
By phosphorus bombs

As Eileen noted in the last haiku, war obliterates much of Mother Nature, as does building roads and large structures in cities. Consider planting a tree for Earth Day to help the forests proliferate Use any of the online addresses on treeplanting, such as:
