Another Sensational Haiku Wednesday

Join the fun!

A new challenge, again a week went on so a new Sensational Haiku Wednesday has come. Also a new prompt "absence", not an easy one, surely a tough one, but I will give it a try. In this time of year (late autumn) surely there are images that are inspiring for this new prompt.

the first snow
autumn has come to an end
a last leaf falls

today a sad day
the bright autumn sun is absent
only the rain

Credits: Bare Branches

the bare trees
the backyard gloomy
no colours at all

the absence
of the blooming trees of Spring
makes me sad

Oh! that loneliness
the absence of all the leaves
even more alone

As much as I love Autumn - it is indeed sad when it is no longer available until the next year!

I love autumn myself very well, but winter has his own charm. Looking forward to the falling snow and ice skating. The long evenings and nights I love them. Winter ... the season for thinking over ... and look forward.

__With the thought winter nights, comes the thoughts of a warm cuo of tea, a candle, and the comfort of a fresh log on the fire.
__Great group here Chevrefeuille, and too I've reviewed "Spasms of Light," there as well... nice work!
__Always. _m

Hello Maygar, thank you for your kind words. I have read your haiku in the concept of "Spasms Of Light". I was thrilled.
