Trees standing in an open field evoke an emotion of tranquility in me. Wordsworth defined poetry as "emotion recollected in tranquility." The Japanese haiku poets are masters at holding up a mirror for others to see the reflections of beauty in a precise moment. Written usually in three lines, this style of poetry expresses only the essentials and lets the reader's imagination supply the details. I kinda like that -and thought this poem below summed up my rainy day photos of trees around the valley.
"Out in the fields
Together with the birds,
I will be surrounded with mist."
