HAIKU HEIGHTS prompt "obsession"

This weeks prompt "obsession" is again tough. But I will give it a try.

three liitle lines
overwhelming obsession -
haiku passion

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

Join the fun!

This weeks haiku wednesday has the prompt "fleeting", a nice prompt to work with. It wasn't easy, but I succeeded.

her perfume
is fleeting with her laughter -
mother's funeral

Until next wednesday

I discovered Poets United, the place to be, when you have your own poetry blog. I am glad to have found this website and I have published there one of my first English Haiku:

a lonely flower
my companion

for one night

een eenzame bloem
mijn metgezel
voor een nacht
