after windy night: haiku

copper leaves remain

a flock of feathers on top

swaying in the wind

  1. it never ceases to amaze me how the last of the leaves always seem to crown the trees – … I really like how you’ve worded this haiku – the analogy of leaves=feathers=birds …. is wonderful!

      1. it happens here alot – in fact, my sugar maple has fallen shed its crown – and as usual, it was the last part to let go –
        I wonder about it, you’d think that with high winds and all of that, that tops off would be first, but nope, it’s always bottoms up! first … 🙂
