Haiku of the Autumnal


like decaying leaves
first we whither, then we fall
oh, the coming days!


sullen sky today
yet still, aspirations burn
shadowed paths revealed


low, gray clouds advance
footsteps crack like breaking bones
the wind’s chill churns deep


the pine’s evergreen
or the maple’s sudden fall
flare comes with a cost


with the winded leaves
with the doves in their mourning
I explode with life


soon the leaves will fall
thereafter, soon, too, the snow
soon, all is too soon
