hawthorn

Carpe Diem #994 Hawthorn

" . . . The Celts understood the power of balance. They also knew that what could not be attributed to specific outcomes (as sometimes evident in the dance of contradictions played out by the hawthorn) indicated a great source of magic. In other words, that which cannot be explained contains immense power.
The hawthorn is to be respected in all its diversity and duality. It is a symbol of union of opposites, and serves as a message for us to be more accepting of the unconventional.

An awesome, and very beautiful tree / bush and that deeper meaning is really great. Will not be easy to catch that in a haiku, but I have to try it:

in balance
male and female energy
caught in beauty

spring's white flowers
green to fall's showy leaves
bird's winter food
in the corner of the field
quiet power ...
