A Few New Haiku

The days are becoming shorter. Autmn is moving to it's closure, the air is further cooling down and the winds are becoming stronger and colder. Autumn is THE season for me. I love the colouring of the leaves and the branches becoming 'naked'. The scent of the decomposing nature is sweet and sour, but always the loving smell of the earth. After the rainstorms the Earth is smelling stronger and stronger. Autumn ... the haiku season.

the scent of earth
decomposing leaves
the rain storms

through the branches
without leaves left on them
naked nature

bare branches
spooky lines and profiles
in the moonlight

nature changes
the fresh summer colours
fading away

Hello Gabi, thanks for your kind words. I am honoured that you, one of the most known experts on haiku and seasonwords, gives me such a positive comment. It did move me and makes me humble.

Hello Nanka, it's true. I am obesessed with autumn. I love autumn. It's, in my opinion, the most haiku inspiring season.
