Birches Nov24 by Mark M. Redfearn three birches their silvery throats quivering Advertisements Related Post navigation ← Monk Rain → 8 comments on “Birches” Marit says: November 24, 2012 at 5:30 am Your words picture a world…. I can hear the birches scrape their throats and picture some sort of ‘Ent’ (the trees from Tolkien’s ‘Lord of the Rings’ books… are they called ‘ent’ in the English version too??? Reply Mark M. Redfearn says: November 24, 2012 at 5:55 am Oh, yes, they are Ents in English too. I loved the Ents from the time I first met them when I read the trilogy in college.

Reply Chevrefeuille says: November 24, 2012 at 6:50 am I love the ‘Ents’ of Tolkien too and they are granted here with your nice haiku. And than you are living near the desert … I think you haven’t Silver Birches in your surroundings. Nice haiku. Thank you for participating in Carpe Diem.

Peace, Siggi in Downeast Maine, USA Reply Sue Fox says: November 25, 2012 at 1:06 am I used to live in a little wooden cottage set among silver birch trees, oh I loved their quivering when the breezes blew, thanks for taking me back.
