Oak Leaves

I took this at San Jose's Overfelt Park on one of our haiku meetings there.
I have been told recently that the pond has no water now, because of the drought.
I liked the golden oak leaves against the dark blue of the water.
And, I do not always like a sun-flare, but this one pleased me.  jhh

from every direction
the click of drying leaves
your one-way ticket

"Clicking Leaves" (the faint sounds that can sometimes
be heard from leaves as they dry in autumn)
is one of the interesting kigo that we
chose for our saijiki.
