This haiku was inspired by early spring walks on the wooded trails around Beaver Lake. Some years, my timing has been just right, and Iíve arrived when the trilliums were in full bloom. Most have three white petals, through a few, called Wake-Robins, are a deep red. Thereís a startling contrast between the dark, wet forest floor and the bright white of trilliums which grow in great numbers there.

I like the art of haiku because the form is so concentrated. Every word, every syllable, every sound, matters. Just a few words can conjure up the richness of an experience.

White trilliums light
the dark forest floor glowing
ghostly like spilled stars
