Red IV (haiku)

Crimson the blanket
Warm and crisp and crunchy soft
To rest in Autumn

Tri-Haiku VI (Autumn)

Gold from the sunset
falls as such with autumn leaves
settling to the sea

A sea of crunching
Yellow, reds and gold are here
there beneath my feet

And just like the beach
this November paradise
Autumn comes again

Blessed II

It’s a quarter to six
and the sun’s sinking low
But it’s so lovely here
that I don’t want to go
So I’ll sit here a while
as the shadows grow long
to watch the sun set
to the ebbing tide’s song

And as temperatures drop
and the day disappears
I’ll watch the gold grow
with the salt from my tears
And I’ll bid it farewell
as it fades to the west
from my vantage point here
on the beach where I’m blessed

Tri-Haiku IV (Change)

And as winter comes
I am yellow with summer
Sunshine in my mind

But as summer fades
Yellow changes into blue
Winter takes a hold

And as my palette
paints here a changing picture
the canvas moves on

Autumn Lovely

Raining now and cooler
Autumn’s finally gotten hold
But there’s still a little warmth out there
and it’s not yet all that cold

Some days when the sun comes out
the summer I still see
Although the falling leaves from
every shrub and bush and tree
tell me that it won’t be long
’til winter’s brittle time
When everyone will dress up warm
even when it’s fine

But I’m far from disappointed
as this change is fine with me
Especially with the lovely things
that every day I see

Tri-Haiku III (Windy)

Blustering it blows
Yet autumn’s chill is present
Windy November

In between the grey
white clouds blown across the sky
Sunshine shows its face

Stormy yet still warm
Threatened rain in cloudy skies
Autumn windiness

Autumnal sun

I went back to the beach
though the summer was done
But there was still a warmth
in the autumnal sun
The sea was the same
with the waves a deep blue
reflecting the sky
with its colour and hue

And the peace and the solitude
down there with the sun
was perfect I’d say
with my working day done
So I sat there a while
and reflected that this
is where my contentment
borders on bliss
