A Leaf Falls

by Michael J Falotico

                                               leaf sprouts on the tree
                                              baby in the carriage sees
                                                 full bloom in summer.

                                              young man sits on bench
                                           colors change as time passes
                                                 old man holds a leaf

written for the "When" contest

    How utterly brilliant to create this for the "When" contest Michael... the deep meaning in both sets of Haiku is totally invigorating to thought process luv.. imagination personified ..good luck my W.K. as your Jersey Girl is in thoughtful mode this week..

    I actually have a poem somewhere that starts with "a leaf falls"-- I never got around to finishing it, maybe me seeing your poem is a sign? But I love your take on it-- it is deep and I really like how you contrast the sprouting of that leaf to life, and of falling leaves with aging-- very thought provoking! and haha now you know, it's not only me who is crazy here?? lol, burgers & a massage, who'd have thunk right? hugs :)
