September Heights, day 12 Rain

Inspired by the theme at


Today's prompt is Rain a wonderful prompt, because we are entering autumn and in that season rain falls are very common and often accompanied by thunderstorms and strong winds. At least ... in my country.

autumn has come
every day heavy rain falls
leaves tolling around

leaves tolling around
covering the streets and gardens
their sweet perfume

their sweet perfume
of dead and decomposing
autumn has come



See you all tomorrow.

I love your description of the 'sweet perfume'...

Love how you contrasted sweet perfume with death and decomposition, though fallen leaves do have that nice smell. I really enjoyed this.

Wonderful image '''leaves tolling around! I like it!

Leo said...

I love the first, and though the cascade works seamlessly, I feel the first stands on its own! :) Beautiful.

I enjoyed your cascading haiku and the picture of autumn that it brings to me. Scent, sound, and sight :-)

One could get carried watching leaves blown around by wind and rain. I love the first one. You 'got me on the sweet perfume.'
