Winter from a Window
The empty stems of the fennel
Under umbrella heads of raindrops
Are perches for the waiting birds
The grey green sage leaves
Glow crystal white in the frost
Moss grows where the branch
Leaves the trunk of the bonsai
Its ruddy leaves falling
Amongst the yellowing leaves
A single crimson rose bud perishes
Yellow leaves have fallen from the dogwood
Leaving its blood-red stems
Amongst the tangle of a Russian vine
On the ground

I didn't have a Haiku structure in mind when I wrote it, but I see what you mean. Perhaps there was something left over in my mind from the Three Haiku I published here a few days ago.

Nice...Is it a type of haiku?
