the carelessness
of leaves

    Love the way the "l" and "s" sounds in "carelessness" take a while to unfurl and fall. Love the closure of "m" sounds in the first line. Love the slight shift in the initial vowel sounds from "awe" to "eh" to "ee[k]." I appreciate and envy your sprezzatura haiku writing.

    How lovely! Made me laugh and feel welcome into the day . . .

    Gaby, Thank you, I’m really glad you liked the sounds and the sprezzatura (new word for me). I wanted to give the feeling that leaves are coming to their finish, their getting casual, even carelessness.

    As Marilyn notes, it’s a fun haiku I had fun in writing
