Autumn Haiku

quiet waters;
brilliant autumn colors
gathered shadows

-Andromeda Jazmon

This weekend it is cold and rainy, but last weekend was brilliant sunshine. The leaves were at their peek and we had a glorious afternoon in the woods. I hope you find some of this light to bask in around your way. Check out the Friday Poetry round up hosted by JoAnn at Teaching Authors.

gold infused leaves
come down one at a time;
still water

Pretty gathering of shadows, colors, and water, Andromeda. This was a good place for me to start my Poetry Friday meanderings. :)

Lovely. I had some gathered shadows this week. But got past them.

You distilled the emotions of the season so perfectly. The poem like a leaf, and a ripple circling out, on my still morning.

It's my favorite season, and you have captured it beautifully in one short, beautiful post.

Gorgeous haiku. Wishing you a peaceful autumn weekend.

I love the diamond shape in the center of both of your photos. It pulls me in and I float on the calm water like one of the fallen leaves...ah....

Lovely!

Julie Larios said...

Yes, the photos are beautiful, and the haiku calming - thanks, Andromeda. (Do other people see the branches and limbs almost spelling something out - a "V", an "A" maybe...? What are they trying to tell us?!)

Andromeda Jazmon said...

Thanks for all these lovely comments friends! I am glad to share the moment.

Julie I felt like the shadows were trying to pull me down into the water but the light was pulling up. Everything seems to sink. Or float. I do see the letter A. I thought it was for Andromeda. Ha.

Ooh, I adore those "gathered shadows" too. And the photos simply draw one in. Beautiful for my Poetry Sunday...thank you.

i've spent the last week or so trying to capture some of the fall sights with a camera to show to season-impoverished friends, and it never occurred to me to use words. i may pass along a link to you autumn haiku instead.
