haiku - books

On One Deep Breath this week the prompt is to write a haiku or tanka about books. So I thought of an outdoor scene for an environmentalist with her books:

in a shady spot –
the wind blows through the leaves
of my favourite book.

That's lovely - it's raining here, so no reading outside, sadly. But yes, the play on "leaves" is a wonderful image.
