Chill

Ronovan Writes Haiku Challenge 273 Forest / Whisper

Chill whispers to me
through the fallen forest leaves
Winter’s time is here

See last touch of bright colors
Snow soon falls for a cover

Season’s Best

As I begin the work of putting the vegetable garden to bed, I found one last red tomato hidden in the vines. While I have gathered dozens of Big Boys, Celebrities and Big Beef Tomatoes already this fall, this bonus straggler will be featured in my lunch today, for nothing tastes better than a tomato freshly picked from the garden.

The last tomato
clinging to a wilted vine
is season’s best pick

Writing

Sometimes a picture stays with me, nudging my soul; and as I try to find the perfect words, each revision continually falls short. Perhaps that’s what poetry is for me – An unending search to assign meaning to life’s unique events

Here is yet another attempt to capture a small moment

Autumn’s sweetest rose
touched by flames of fall fire
-and a bit of frost

Thought progression of a Haiku

Fall Finale

Reworked Rose Haiku from Yesterday’s post.

(We always think we could do better… until the “bitter frost”!)

Autumn’s sweetest rose
painted with blushing passion
before bitter frost

Letzte süße Rose
-Mit rotem Feuer erblüht
Vor dem Winterfrost
