Last Leaves

36" x 48"

"Falling leaves" has been a popular subject in poetry for many centuries because it is a counterpart of the human life's drama. I came across the following Haiku some years ago. I do not know who wrote it.
"A lone leaf
in winter sky.
Is there any difference
between this dried-up leaf
and me?"
I wanted to evoke the pathos of this Haiku in "Last Leaves." The drama reflected upon is the beauty of consummation, an ultimate end, represented by bared branches against the wintry sky.
