back to the root

My poem, a troiku, is based on this haiku by Matsuo Basho:

falling to the ground
a flower closer to the root
bidding farewell

Troiku:

falling to the ground
colours of autumn
float to the earth

a flower closer to the root
touching its origin
a new journey begins

bidding farewell
sadness
on the breeze
