Dead leaves on the ground
Just like dreams I used to have
Trampled and broken

Great haiku! Hope some of your dreams go somewhere, though :) But spring: new green leaves Replace the crinkled brown, spent... Our dreams cycle too

I really like this. You make a good link between dead leaves and broken dreams that is easily understandable when you read it. Great job!

This was incredibly good. And that's why I love haikus: they make simple but deep connections.
