"7"autumn haiku

autumn—red and gold

her dress a prier—crumpling rose

trees bare—interlock



emerging from ice

and snow—a white swan—appears

"abject moon—thy sorrow"



blackthorn—green branches

cascading amber's locket —

after school Pep-talks



winters fog lagoons

carp sedate break—roll like clouds

nearby—the city graveyard



opaque damp shadows

gleam in orange and red leaf

in storms—goldfish leap



mistletoe and holly—at

the Municipal graveyard

grasp the nettle—pure folly



chestnut pendulums—

they're good at playing tick tack toe—

the pity gravity isn't fair

Beautiful poetry. I am not so familiar with Haiku, but especially loved the following:

emerging from ice

and snow—a white swan—appears

"abject moon—thy sorrow"

Beautifully written, and poignant.
