Monday Morning #Haiku 34 — Autumn Steals Summer

Virginia Creeper &  Ivy

Wind whooshes drizzle;
autumnal red says goodbye
to summer. Frosts soon.

Thank you to those who voted and provided feedback to my poll last week. Those in favour of images and punctuated haiku won the vote, but this doesn’t rule out the occasional unpunctuated haiku in the future. You can see the full results of the Poll here

  1. Your words captured the feel of the autumn. The photo also puts you in a fall kind of mood. I voted for unpunctuated. 🙂

    • I will make sure to write an unpunctuated haiku occasionally, bearing you in mind 🙂 Today’s haiku needed punctuation for clarity, especially as there was a run-on line.

      I hope that a fall kind of mood is okay to you. It’s a season full of beauty and wild winds for enjoying brisk walks, but I have to try not to think of winter following on, as it’s my least favourite season. In particular, January and February.

  3. Sarah, I have to say that you helped me see a map of leaves here. A little Europe- and Asia-like in shape, to my (admittedly weird) mind. Love it!

    • Oh, you see shapes in everything, too. Ditto to weirdness. As a child, with my overactive imagination, I used to scare myself silly with the black patterns on my dark-green bedroom curtains taking on various forms.
