Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
It's time for a new episode of our "Ghost Writer" post and this week I have chosen for a post written by Hamish Gunn of Cabin Fever. He surprised me with this GW-post, because he analyzed a haiku written by myself. Thank you Hamish for granting me the honor to be part of your GW-post.
I hope you all will like this GW-post and I am looking forward to your haiku inspired on this GW-post. Have fun!
TREE OF LIFE
In my years of living in the wonderful deserts of Bahrain and Saudi Arabia one of my memories is the visits to the Tree of Life in the desert of Bahrain, a tree that thrives despite no water source, and within the designated area of the supposed garden of Eden, thus adding more mystique to its official moniker, Tree of Life. To me, it is an ideal location, theme and topic for a simple but profound haiku. What does the ”Tree of Life” mean to you? Please title your haiku Tree of Life to help guide you and ensure you won't need to use those words in your haiku.

Quite a few times Chèvrefeuille has alluded to the deeper meaning in haiku, and his haiku. Try to bring that into your haiku about the Tree of Life. That deeper meaning is not there in the first reading, or maybe not even in the second. But have it there.
