Autumn Leaves

A few days ago I noticed the yellow leaves, the reflecting creek waters, the wind, the sunny day, and here is a group of haikus recording what I saw…

Haiku Group Yellow Leaves Falling

1.
Yellow leaves falling
to be caught up and carried
on the water’s back

2.
Yellow leaves scattered
on the surface of the creek
by plan and purpose

3.
Yellow leaves scatter
arrange themselves in patterns
not to be explained

4.
Yellow falling leaves
arrange themselves at random
Or so it may seem

5.
The pale water shines
with the warm yellow sparkles
of the fallen leaves

6.
The pattern arranged
now complete as the wind blows
and yellow leaves fall

7.
Yellow leaves scattered
on the surface of the creek
fragment the blue sky

8.
Scattered yellow leaves
balance on the blue surface
of the glassy creek

I took this photo some years ago, but every year I see this kind of fall scene, and I am so happy.

  1. Thank you. There is something about doing a group of haikus like this. One leads to another. All the while I am thinking in a very focused way about something that has meant something to me. It imprints it on my mind. I love the process. Thanks for reading.

  2. Thank you. I try to describe what I see, not fancy it up, just what words come to me as I look at things. I do tend to ascribe a spirit or personality to a lot of things that others think of as inanimate! And the world is full of words to me. I feel lucky, never a boring moment.

    Thanks for enjoying my zine. I hope to do another one someday, but the right experience has got to come along.

    Kind of like haikus, I guess!
