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

Winter comes to town

Autumn at St Mary’s
the yellow and the gold
the sunshine on the falling leaves
hides the biting chill
Crunching footfall as I walk
A blanket crisp and brown
as breath escapes in tiny clouds
and winter comes to town

Rubies

Surrounded by red
Rubies more precious than gold
Such treasure have I

The Turning

Turning now
the green will fade
to liquid gold
of Autumn shade
Past equinox
less sunlight hours
But warm enough
for many flowers

There’s colour here
to hold at bay
the looming months
of Winter grey
But turning now
the fading slow
as Autumn has
still much to show

Stealing Summer

September stole the summer
and took some green away
Then revealed its hoarded treasure
with some gloating yesterday

It’s started turning greenery
into orange, red and gold
But it blasted us with sunshine
‘Cos it’s clever and it’s bold

September pilfers that we love
but turns it into treasure
Threading summer into autumn
With some sunshine for good measure

The Falling

Intangible, there’s something
different in the air
Not too sure about that though
as it’s not, as yet, quite there
Some say it is the Autumn
knocking at the door
Yet today I felt the summer
coming back for more

Having said that, there’s a fragrance
feint upon the breeze
The sunshine’s lost a little strength
and there’s a browning to the leaves
So I guess it won’t be long
until the crunching time is near
When everything turns golden
at the falling time of year

Red

The creeper and the honeysuckle
Both are turning red
Just one more show of colour
Before off to winter bed

Red glow after sunset
Still heralds warming rays
But the sun is now more distant
So we’re set for cooler days

Red skies in the mornings
More common now I fear
As the autumn into winter
Settles in another year
