Withered Leaves

withered and brown
clinging to a sappy twig
last leaf on the tree

My response to Carpe Diem #1586 withered leaves

‘Withered leaves’ is the modern kigo for today and it’s been taken from Jane Reichhold’s Dictionary of Haiku, section: winter, subsection: plants. We also have example haiku from Jane’s Saijiki.
