Thank you very much for fav'ing my poem Elaine. It is great hearing from you. Poetry kind of went on the back burner during Christmas with my little granddaughter. I wish you a wonderful New Year in 2015. Blessings, Connie

Really Connie, I saw the title and could not resist. I love this Haiku, for a minute I wondered how Indians and nature.. Now it is like wow! Really very impressive. I am just wondering if you mean the leaves once they are dead and crispy once you step on them . And the dance I suppose is the wind picking the leaves off the floor in a swirl dance,, in the wind,,lol,, my comment is to long for your AWESOME haiku. Going to my favs.,..p.d.
