My lovely oak tree at the back of the garden has died, so sad.

Skeleton remains (Haiku)

The ancient oaks death

so naked in its demise

cannot promise leaves

I am so sorry to read of the death of your oak tree, shells. This is a beautiful haiku, however, well deserving of applause.

I can sense,in this, the rightness of the cycle in which death is a part.

Very good. But sad.

It lives on in your fine haiku. Now, plant an acorn :)

I agree with macca, you've caught the sense of passing, and the associated sadness.

This is lovely in its tragedy.
