OCTOBER LEAVES

how they chatter
wave    sway    catch the breeze
sun struck then shadowed

leaves on the pond
ripples lifting    shifting
highlight gold to amber

one early tree
three leaves like children
forlorn and clinging

sun and moon
turmoil never ceasing
how they dance

    Have'nt read many better than this one Daver, the picture of those 3 leaves sticks in my thoughts. As does feelings of irrelevance in life in general..) Mind you I always get contemplative around this time of year." Yours Joe..)

    I like the descriptive lines of next to the last Haiku..I remember my children in that stage so well..Great comparison between those last tenacious leaves and the clinging child..Enjoyed reading ...Sara
