September Heights, Autumn

Inspired by the theme at



Day 5 of September Heights is there, write a haiku on Autumn. Nice prompt I think. Autumn is one of my favorite seasons so I have to come up with a good one (smiles). What do I like of Autumn? I love the Autumn moon, she is gorgeous in this season. The feeling of loss and departing. All those different colors of the leaves, the sweet smell of decomposing leaves. I love the mushrooms of this season. And what of the weather? The weather can be great. It can be warm and sunny, but it can also be cold and rainy with thunderstorms and heavy wind. Ah! Autumn ... a wonderful season.


The beautiful autumn colors of the American Oak ... aren't they wonderful and so fragile.

vanishing summer
leaves begin to color
Autumn will soon be there

Autumn will soon be there
the heavy rains and storms collide
trees uprooted

trees uprooted
tiles broken on the streets
the force of nature

the force of nature
finally after the Autumn storm
the sight of the full moon

the sight of the full moon
brings back good memories
vanishing summer

A wonderful cascading haiku I think in which I have tried to paint Autumn ... you, my dear visitors, may decide if I have touched Autumn.

See you tomorrow.

The last verse expresses feelings of Autumn well I think.

Lovely to read you again, Kris! Yes, the sight of the full moon does bring back memories.

The sight of Full moon and Vanishing Summer, all worth in the end, no?
inspite of the forces of nature.

Hazel said...

Not long ago I witnessed trees uprooted where I work. And you said it - 'force of nature.' Power in your haiku today.

A great cascade of haiku. Autumn isn't just about colour and falling leaves: equinoctial gales are so damaging if the leaves are still largely attached to trees!

PattiKen said...

Wow, I don't usually think of autumn as packing such a punch. You must live in storm country.

odyzz said...

I am in a fix..why my comments are vanishing...??

joanne said...

I think you nailed autumn in all its nuances....warm, cool, rainstorms - wonderful cascade of verses

Leo said...

After RS, u have taken this form to heart :) Liked the style, and also the way you've combined both moon and autumn together.

Kristjaan Panneman said...

Hi Odyzz, I don't know why your comments vanish. Maybe ... it's my own fault. I am using a tablet with a 7 inches screen and sometimes I give the wrong comment by tapping the screen. I hope not that it is my fault, but if so ... I apologize for that.
