Over my shoulder
A butterfly falls
But it’s only a gold leaf
Going home

You have said so much in so few words-going "home." How lovely!

a gold leaf going home (or any leaf going home): what an idea! Love it.

I, too, love the brevity. But I also want to award the simplicity! This is a universal experience in the fall and you captured that moment. Brava!

I echo Kevin's comment and the reader is the one rewarded.
