Very clever poem. Question: How many trees to fill the average library?

Fantastic Haiku, at first I thought of leaves people press in books, then I read it again. Very Clever indeed.

The magic of a library..what a unique use of the prompt..I am sure leaves would gladly give themselves up for magical thoughts..jae

Your haiku is lovely .... combining the splendor of a forest with a shelf full of books is inspired.

I adore the notion of books being an indoor forest. Beautiful, Rel.

I could live in that indoor forest for quite some time! At least when books are made, the trees go toward something wonderful and lasting!

An indoor forest, maybe, but how manay outdoor saplings spring from it?
