Dear Haijin, visitors and travelers,
"Withered leaves" is our modern kigo for today's episode. It's taken from Jane Reichhold's "A Dictionary of Haiku" section: winter, subsection: plants. A wonderful modern kigo to work with I think so no further explanation needed.
up to a branch
wind took a winter leaf
let it fall again
cooling the colors
the growing cold
of withered leaves
