We can see the past.
Writer's notes. Voweling to never write a haiku again after writing eight mountain haiku poems and forty-four blue haiku poems. Then, this happened.
"Write a haiku about time.
A time capsule is a historic cache of information that is intended to communicate the spirit of that time with people in the future. For this challenge, we are asking you to capture how a haiku can be a vehicle to represent a period of time or express the feeling of time."

Awesome, Babs! I love this. Tree rings also came to mind when I heard the new haiku challenge was about time. Such a clear, beautiful way to visually mark its passage. 🪵💚 You did the trees justice!
Excellent take on the challenge! Loved it. And 44 blue Haikus in the 12 days we had to submit them phew! that has to be a record of some kind. You are the Haiku Queen! 💖
I loved this. Cut from a tree rings map brilliant!
Excellent Babs 😍
I had a friend write haiku's every day for a month last year. She said she wore herself out with that and decided to skip a year of my Poem a Day in February. So far she has skipped. You do excellent work on haiku's my friend!😊💕
This is a truly amazing and intriguing concept, Babs! Super well done!
Very lovely, Babs!
Whoaaa, loved this concept! So brilliant!
I hear ya! Beautifully done,. though. :)
Great! I wouldn't have thought about that but if trees rings could talk what might we hear? Greet take on the challenge.
So glad you did write this one Babs. Along with dogs, the ocean, birds and flowers; I love trees 🌳 and they tell so much. Beautiful. ❤️
Love this Babs and love your haiku tenacity! 😊
Oh I love this!!! I've always been fascinated with tree rings and what can be gleaned from them. So cool, Babs!
Nicely done, my friend
Excellent observations is a few lines
As simple as haikus can be, they are deceptively challenging to write well. And write them well you do 😊
I’m glad you decided to write another haiku!! :) Nice imagery in this!
