Leaf & Look

And/or the photo

Off to an engagement in an hour so I can’t go mad with my haiku, but here is one, using the words.

The way I see it
We are all from the same tree
Each of us a leaf

And a Tanka from the photo!

Standing quietly
A leaf of paper floats down
I look up, he smiles
Love letters sent from above
Italian romance starts

    I think sometimes we forget that we are part of the same tree, whether green or yellow or orange. Nicely written, Ritu ❤ Loved the Italian romance. 🙂

    You did well with both of them Sis. I particularly love the idea of us all being leaves from the same tree 🙂
