Leaning In



As the light pours down,
each leaf, every branch leans in,
awaiting the kiss.

(Thanks to the women of Poetry Thursday
for their continuing inspiration,
and to Kirby James, for letting me "lift" his photo.)

The colours are quite striking in the photo. Nice haiku to go with it.

It does seem like the leaves know exactly what they need as they lean towards the sun... a kiss is a perfect way to describe it...

the photo and the poem are beautifully complementary. Thank you for introducing me to the haiga form.
