my haiku speaks of sadness
yet the bare trees smile

    The rules according to one Grand Master [Western Chapter] say that a haiku should contain a recognition of the season and the time of day, and an implicit paradox which reveals the nature of nature (here, human v. growth cycle...) .
    Now, I've got the ink-block, brush and paper - who brought the wine?
