Springtime thoughts

Leaf lost on concrete

 

I found myself considering the sadness of leaves and seeds that fall where they can neither decompose nor have the opportunity to germinate and grow. And so, on a (serious) whimsy, I promised the residue on the garage floor that when I was finished with taking their photographs, there, I would gather up them all and return them to the outdoors, where they may decay, or sprout, and live again.

mourning for the leaves on the garage floor
thrown out in new plastic bags
not renewing the soil

I used a kimo instead of a haiku for this haibun.
