    Thank you so much.
    That is the beauty of haiku
    Here, we don’t preach or philosophise,
    but things are put forward in a very subtle way

    Happy you could relate to this haiku.

    This 3 liner contains so much of depth. The fallen leaf reminds us of our mortality and perishable nature. Our days on earth are numbered and every moment we are nearing our graves. Dust we are and to dust we will return. Nothing will last forever. We must realize the frailty of our lives and lead a worthy life because that is what God expects of us. Man’s mortality expressed very beautifully and concisely

  10. kalaramesh Says:

    Lovely feedback, Susan.
    Thank you so much. If only we care to pause and reflect, nature teaches us so much.

  11. Marion Clarke Says:

    Just like the leaf, we become, we grow, we wither and die…before moving on to another state of being. Nicely done, Kala.
