Another week has gone by. The Thursday Poets Rally week 57 has already begun. So another weeks challenge to write a few haiku for this Poets Rally.
Sometimes I don't have enough inspiration to write my haiku, but the last days there was an overwhelming inspiration by reading Haiku Vol. 3 by R.H.Blyth. In our haiku world we call the Haiku series (4 volumes) of Blyth "the Bible of haiku". Blyth has a great feeling with haiku of the ancient masters such as Matsuo Basho and Kobayashi Issa. Vol. 3 of this series is titled "summer-autumn". I love both seasons, but My heart begans beating a little bit harder when it's autumn. So I have chosen a few haiku with autumn as theme.
the colourful leaves
Ah! what a sight
behind thin clouds
this autumn day
has gone by
without the full moon

|A cold winter day|
I think of days gone
and days to come
Lovely. I love fall but do not love the snow and cold and ice that follows all too soon.
Thanks for visiting my blog and the lovely comment, nice to meet you.
Nice to meet you too. I am always on the search for poetry, so I ran into your site through the Poets Rally.
Lovely images in your haikus! I especially like fall as well and it is cold and bare here now. It's nice to hold on to those imageS and feelings. Thanks for coming be The Attic too!

There is something haunting about autumn that I love.
Nice haiku. Thanks for sharing.
I love the beauty of fall, so i really like a lot in your poem, especially the first verse.
These are beautiful. I love autumn as well. It's my favorite of the seasons.
Beautiful words and picture... I like the concept of summer-autumn days ~
Autumn is my favorite time of year ... over the beauty of Spring ... I always feel a transformational shift as the leaves turn into a majestic coat of colors. Thank you for sharing a great set of Haiku. :-)
Autumn is closing
the last leaves falling -
th first snow
