Haiku of the Day

This week's prompt from Haiku Horizons is "branch."  One thing came to mind right away, based on the time I, along with my brother and friend from down the block saw Tefillin hanging from our tree in front of the house.  It was when I was in seventh grade.  My teacher did not believe the story even when I showed him the Tefillin.

If I think of other haiku on branches I will, please G-d, post them in comments here.

Splitting from her trunk
skinny and leaning sideways
the lone branch bounces

Like a broken branch
That's how he feels as he sees
His father aging
