The Heavy Leaf

This piece was written in response to Naviarhaiku339 – The Heavy Leaf

     See the heavy leaf
     on the silent windless day
     falls of its own will.

This haiku is by Nozawa Bonchō, a haikai poet and disciple of Basho who worked as a doctor in Kyoto. Later in life Bonchō distanced himself from Basho’s school and was imprisoned for a crime. He died in 1714.

The Heavy Leaf was written for Flute, Clarinet, Horn, Trombone, Violin, Viola, and Cello.
