Celebrate Poetry-4/29: AUTUMN

The theme for Day 29’s celebration of National Poetry Month is “AUTUMN.” Click HERE for details of this haiku celebration of throughout the month of April.

A few years ago, I found this leaf in the wooded acres where I lived and was struck by its brilliant colors and its contrast to the gray day. Once again, nature was a metaphor for life.

    leaf ripened in red
    time to let go
    dance your way down

  2. A favourite season
    Nostalgia of falling leaves
    Spring colours reversed

  3. Azim Khan says:

    crunchy leaves
    falling to the ground-
    corn flakes on my plate

  4. Nora says:

    Sudden chilly breeze
    The clouds and seasons cycle
    Colors and cold come

  5. Jim Barton says:

    stray scarlet oak leaf
    paints the gray Kansas of home
    as an Oz portal

  6. Fay Guinn says:

    Leaves die in glory,
    air chills. If Autumn comes, can
    Spring be far behind?
