sleepy woodland pool –
leaves drift on surface dreaming
of past summer sun

    Since I’m not a pool, I have no problem of NOT dreaming of summer suns past. (This summer has been brutal!)

    Beautifully evocative! I do wonder sometimes what those soggy autumn leaves contemplate….and whether they look ahead or look back!

    Once the leaves fall they dry and decay. I think i’d dream of summer sun. I am a sun person and it has been so gloomy here for days. Welcome Autumn.

    Craving summer’s warmth, the desire to linger as leaves floating on the surface is a credible and vivid image. Lovely haiku
    Happy you dropped by my sumie-e Sunday today, Toni

    Much love…
