Thursday Tree Love with Haiku: Parking Lot Trees Reveal Sunshine and Secrets

7 Comments

Parking lot trees Dec

 

Big trees provide shade

Letting winter sun shine in

Together we breathe

 

Parking lot trees in December

 

When leaves have fallen

Open space reveals secrets

Enticing a kiss

 

Parking lot trees with mistletoe

The neighbors have mistletoe!

I walked about the first two trees to discover that the neighboring tree wore mistletoe!

There are many stories and legends about mistletoe including the one from Norse Mythology about Baldr the beautiful being killed with a weapon made of mistletoe.  His mother, the goddess Frigg, cried tears which turned into mistletoe berries.

Frigg decreed that, instead of being punished, mistletoe should become a symbol of peace and friendship evermore. (Source below.)

You can read more legends about Misletoe here.

Caution: Mistletoe can be poisonous, especially to dogs and cats.

  1. These are so beautiful! I guess the golden leaves are about to drop for the winter??? The Mistletoe legend is fascinating… Thanks for sharing these!

  2. We have lots of mistletoe around.

  3. Lovely color and the trees. I will be honest. I did not know about the legend of Mistletoe and that they are not just Christmas ornaments. So glad you shared, JoAnna. Happy new year. Hope you have a great 2020.
    Here’s wishing you happy days ahead. See you around on the 9th.

    • I didn’t know the details of mistletoe legends until I looked it up, just the kissing tradition. I haven’t seen a lot of mistletoe besides up in trees lately. I hope to see you around the 9th, too!
