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
