The idea of giving back is always appealing, intimating a returning joy; it tells us, in a very subtle way, that we have not lost our soul; it skew us, into a notion of eternity, of life continuing. This dynamic is succintly expressed in Marleen's 12 syllable haiku.
Autumn, with its paradoxical harvesting and withering, resonnates Lines One and Three 'wreath' and 'feeds' while Line Three pivots well Lines One and Two.
This haiku can be graphically presented as a circle; which crafts very well, the use of the kigo 'wreath'

The theme for the kukai, was 'wreath'
