    A very tidy haiku, a snapshot of a churchyard with dry leaves on it: it
    could be tidier. More than one broomstick is needed.

    You are very true. Single broomstick cannot wash out may dried leaves fallen from trees. Unity is strength. This poem is humorously and metaphorically expressed. Revisiting this poem values more. (Report)Reply

    There is a limit for what a single person can do or achieve, but there is no limit if a whole group functions together! Collective strength is several times greater than individual strength! You have emphasized the point with a beatuiful example! Great Haiku, Jez! (Report)Reply
