Fallen Leaf and Japanese Maple

Fallen Leaf and Japanese Maple

When my new friend, Ann, who I mentioned in a previous blog about Timnath, saw this photo, she sent me one of her favorite haiku, by Basho, considered one of the fathers of haiku:

It is deep autumn
My neighbor
How does he live, I wonder.

The fallen leaf is from a massive Honey Locust in Denver Botanic Gardens.

Thanks, Ann, for sharing.
