Autumnal haiku - senses

Sweet cherries
hang ripe on the trees -
free snacks!

bonfire smoke
rises from the garden -
sharp frost.

a robin perches
on a bare branched tree –

a robin sings
a melancholy song -
first snow fall

autumn wind -
the roughness of falling leaves
brushes my hair

More haiku on the senses on my Alter Ego blog.

Senses for One Deep Breath

Excellent series of haiku - I particularly like the last one, and can really feel the "roughness of falling leaves brushing my hair."

Well done:)

The bonfire smoke to frost part stood out to me. They shouldn't go together, but do.

Excellent, all. I manage to produce one. I'm impressed by how many you and a few others produce and all so rich and varied.

Great, seasonal haiku. The line "free snacks" made me giggle.

I like the first and last ones best. The first for its energy burst and the last for it's wistful romantic mood.

I love these. The robin's melancholy song and the smoke... sharp!
