There are 17 seeds (or syllables) on the central "tree" and one of the 5 trees is finally sprouting from the dark soil. A homage to the beauty and power of haiku poetry to evoke images of the natural world. Carved dark walnut wood, seeds, thread, California palm fronds, mechanical hand-crank music melody: "Here Comes the Sun".
