a little boy’s drum
lying under the plum tree
while the petals fall

    I love the mental picture of this haiku. I wonder if the boy remembers and comes back for it or if he’s like my sons and forgot where he left it? I really enjoyed it!

    petals echoing silence
    the little boy lost his drum
