    Haiku prompt: Autumn/spring

    Hi all

    Feel free to post your own haiku on the theme of autumn or spring depending on which hemisphere you are in!

    Please try and keep your images crisp, clear and simple.

    Here is one from Mitsu Suzuki to get you started:

    Autumn wind
    nothing but graffiti
    playground


    Masoaka Shiki:

    Singing somewhere
    back of the shoe closet
    a katydid


    And me:

    trying
    each jumper in turn
    early autumn

    One from me:

    Windy swing park
    Dads on phones
    on a rare day off

    And one from Fay Aoyagi:

    overslept
    I blame the quietness
    of rain

    Gassho,

    Neil

    Autumn breath
    ruffles the fraying crest
    sunday visit

    Old blossoms falling.
    Brand new blossoms are also
    old falling blossoms.

    -- Ryokan

    New blossoms blooming.
    Old blossoms, though they fade, fall --
    are new blossoms too.

    -- me

    Maybe a free form one from me...

    Winds blow golden
    Cranes back
    Ah!

    Haiku prompt: Autumn/spring

    Naked branches
    rain dripping from faded colors
    autumn hillside

    I am a novice priest. Any resemblance my posts may have to actual teachings about the Dharma, living or dead, is purely coincidental (and just my attempt to be helpful).

    I'm enjoying reading these. Thank you all. Inspiration to write my own is alluding me at the moment as anxiety around completing my Rakusu has a grip.

    Maple and Oak leaves,
    Bunches of colored dry leaf
    Autumn follows Summer
