Hmmm. I thought it had a sort of happy ending. The quiet pond gets the last word.

Yep, that's what brought on the tears for me. The pond is still there, still quiet.

Jonathan: That's what I felt, and that's what most readers seem to get from it. Thanks for coming back.

I just don't like garbage in nature. It seems so unjust.

AP: No quarrel there. But nature retains its healing power, for itself and for us. On the other hand, as you sense, too much "garbage" in the broadest sense will ultimately take its toll. I wanted the haiku to point indirectly to all of these possibilities. As always, thanks for your thoughtful comments.
