Haiku in Red

One crimson leaf...like
a splatter of blood on the
newly fallen snow...

I am linking this to Poets United Thursday Think Tank. This week's prompt is 'the ugly that is beautiful'...blood is surely both!

Lynette: Your Haiku and photo are very nice. The leaf almost looked to me like lips in the icy mix.
