if trees could be landlords


Eve Luckring

Heron's Nest XVII:3 (2015)



Note by the Guest Editor:

These poems have been pulled from my ever-growing document of favorite haiku.

Some I have admired for years, while others I have newly discovered. This is the

joy of poetry, as of life: its ever-changing course of discovery. I encourage all

readers of poetry to keep such a file. As far as has been possible, I have obtained

permission from the writers to share them.

This is a superb monoku! I salute the economy of expression.


Having just seen a couple of huge trees felled in my neighbourhood for the 'convenience' of residents, I could personally relate to it too.

Excellent one. I've always enjoyed reading Eve's haiku.

This is too good.

Just lovely! What is striking is the jarring noise produced in this unusual alignment… a noise that questions both within the notion of “how as a landlord” as well as this knowing— trees don’t do stuff like “landlording”. A smack on the anthropomorphic projects.

Lovely! They are landlords and we are the ones occupying their place without giving them proper rent!!
