Your use of two images that both DO… and do NOT… go together makes this a powerful haiku. I also like your use of alliteration ("she shifted," "hear leaves"). You have clearly chosen each word with care; the words have brought me into the story. Bravo!

Love the vivid imagery and emotions contained in so few words...
