Whipped

Mad winds throw dead leaves
toward trees that quiver with
nothing left to give.

    5/5.When the mad blows of life shake one,they fall like the dead leaves and hold nothing to themselves.

    Excellent write.

    What a powerful haiku.. There are several meanings built up in this 5-7-5 form that it blows me away (pun intended , ha)

    On a metaphoric perspective, the reader can feel the stressors of life giving a person more than they can handle.. Thunderstorms of life..

    Then on the basic message of nature I have seen trees "whipped" around and twisted in storms so darn violent that it amazes me they are standing...

    What a beautiful piece this is.. enjoyed it!!
