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 :)
