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
