Yew

yewWalking along the path next to the churchyard  overhung by some very large yew trees and happened to glance upward as the sun came out.  The boughs are thick with berries, bright red against the deep green needles and a Haiku simply wrote itself by the time I reached home.

Translucent jewels
Nestling within deepest green.
A toxic beauty
