On October 14th, Pure Haiku selected one of five haiku I submitted for the theme “Leaf.” All five poems are shown below. The third haiku is the one that appeared at Pure Haiku.



clouds moving swiftly
sunlight dances with the breeze
leaf in dappled light

wind blows through the tree
underside of leaf glistens
work of playful sun

red leaf slowly drifts
companion mirrored below
wave takes both away

gray clouds hide the sun
tree stands naked and alone
dry leaf last to fall

book not yet finished
I turn over a new leaf
life will continue
