Resting Place

ooooo


under moonlight
a spent leaf falls into bed
with the flowers
                          

ooooo





Today the prompt at HAIKU HEIGHTS is 'sleep.'

  1. Oh, this is great. I love the use of the word "spent." I love the bed makes me think of flower beds as well as the kind we sleep in. I love how the first line sets the tone. No doubt about it . . . masterfully done!
