This one doesn't quite fit in either collection I have in mind, so I'll just post it here

Well actually not one, but five haiku's, forming a sequence.  Like the water cycle, but not quite so wet.


Haiku Sequence:   Nature’s Fight for Survival 

Rainfall to a child:
Drops of water, coming from
God's watering can.

Water from the ground
Reaches leaves in the tree-tops
Nature working hard

Gnarled tree standing proud
Unbowed by wind, rain or age;
Lord of its domain.

Discarded bottles
Littering the surroundings
Blots on the landscape.

Fragile blades of grass
Trampled by human beings

Bounce back up again.
