Laura Leigh

no wind
a single leaf falls
catching my breath

2nd Place Winner in the 2012 ukiaHaiku Festival


On a walk near my pond in late December 2011, the falling of a single leaf caught my attention and my breath in its silent desent to the earth. It is a moment cherished and the stone's shape brought it to the Haiku.Stone Path.
