Thoughtful haiku! The countryside is disappearing here, too, isn't that sad?
Yes the countryside is going to sleep. Lovely Haiku
That's quite a sting in the tail of your haiku. I hope the countryside won't all have disappeared before I get there - at least Scotland is less populated than England.
I wrote a haiku a while back with a similar theme, but a little more left-handed.There was a zoning/annexation meeting here recently where the police had to step in. I've been to some of the commission meetings here, and have heard (very) thinly-veiled threats from certain loose cannons; it must have nearly(?) come to blows.And my father-in-law thinks I should run for a commissioner's post. I think they want to kill me. :-)
So much said in just a handful of words. Nicely done. I'm concerned for us because we need the countryside...and it is dwindling. Where will we go to refresh our eyes...and our spirits?
Very nice haiku. I agree with you that the autumn color is passing much too quickly this year.
Same here :( We are moving in part because of it. It's hard to out run Home Depot. Very poignant haiku!
very poignant haiku, juliet. i thought most of mine where about the countryside too but you can never have too many.nice one. :o)
It is happening everywhere. Painfully sad.
Thanks for all your comments. Star - that's an interesting interpretation. Strangely enough, though people most everywhere are talking of fall colours fadsing fast, here in Edinburgh, most of the trees are still mostly green....
Far-fetched - i hope they don't really want to kill you.....
Catherine - yes still plenty of countryside in Scotland, though in places it is rapidly disapearing but the Highlands and Islands are very sparsely populated.....
