Drifted from its path
Heralding a change in season
Graceful and unique
Writing a Haiku after a long time. Though I cheated with an extra syllable, I couldn’t perfect it the way I would have liked. This stray battered-looking leaf landed upon the window of my car one afternoon and I clicked immediately. It looked so perfect perched on the glass window.

Oft bitter failures
give one too many reasons
to chase sweet success!
Too many obstacles not to pursue further,
Discouraging rationale without failure,
How long can one succumb to defeat!
It’s not time to yield and depart!
Not when success allures from distance!
What if perseverance pays off at last!
Another attempt deserves a try,
Perhaps, the best shot waiting to be freed!
