Haiku by John Stevenson. Artwork by myself. In olden days, grown-ups made a bonfire to burn whatever came out from the year-end cleaning, together with fallen leaves. They threw in some sweet potatos in it, and we as kids eagerly waited for them to be baked. Sweet fond memories. This is no longer permissible because of the environment reasons now.
I used an actual leaf for this haiga. I scanned it and digitized it. And applied digital manipulation to get the curling effect. I think the choice of the font is fitting to this haiku.
