Leaves fall in Autumn

fertilizing earth below.

Spring welcomes new leaves.

Writer's notes. It's a beautiful day in North Texas. The Sun is shining brightly. The air is cool and crisp. The trees are naked and beautiful. While observing the trees, was reminded of the plant cycle.

This poem is entered into the Time Capsule Haiku challenge.

According to Vocal, "For this challenge, we are asking you to capture how a haiku can be a vehicle to represent a period of time or express the feeling of time."

Nature represents and expresses time perfectly.

Thank you for reading. If you like this nature haiku poem, you might like this one found here.
