haiku - change

leaves turn red -
a squirrel gathers
nuts.

******************

leaves fall -
geese fly south
in skeins.

*****************

robin sings
a different song -
bare branches


Change for One Deep Breath

These all three are vivid images. The third is simply perfect. I really like the skeins.

All three are lovely, the third excellent!

Sandy said...

I like the one about the geese, the one about the robins, and the one about the leaves!

Roswila said...

Particularly like this one:

leaves fall -
geese fly south
in skeins.

Love that "skeins," as if they are unknitting the season (or knitting the new one? :-D).

The third is cool, too.

Indicative, evocative haiku. Strange - I wrote skein of geese on my work sheet last week. Great minds? Cosmic thought? Grin. Good post!

ana said...

your dexterity at weaving words together leaves me wordless.

Do I need to add, it is brilliantly written?

get zapped said...

These are wonderful. The first one really grabbed me ;p

qualcosa di bello said...

i like the thread of the leaves changing color, falling & finally a bare branch woven through the three...beautiful imagery

Clare said...

Hi Crafty! Beautiful imagery and wonderful sense of autumn's changes. Lots of life and sensitivity in these, too. I like the squirrel and the birds as they interact with nature's transitions.

Love it! glad I stopped by

Selma said...

That is beautiful. Just what I needed to hear today. I say 'hear' because I tend to read poetry aloud, especially haiku, you get the musicality of it much more that way!

Crafty Green Poet said...

Jo - thanks for letting me know, I'll see if I have anything to send her!

Cloudscome, Clare - thanks!

Qualcosa - yes I was aiming for that, thanks.

Get zapped, ana - thanks!

Tumblewords - its the time of year for skeins of geese!

Plain Foolish said...

So evocative. I could hear the birdsong...

Patois said...

Delightful. Looks like I'm with lots of other fans with regard to the geese in skeins. Very creative.

Pearl said...

Your robin is still not migrated? better pack its little bag...

Crafty Green Poet said...

Plain Foolish, Patois - thanks.

Pearl - LOL, our robins don't migrate, well they do a bit but there are some here all year.
