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

The last rose of autumn
displays with fierce red fever
with a tinge of frost

Bitter Kiss

Ronovan’s Haiku Challenge #127 – Kiss/Taste

As I went to morning coffee, the temperature reading in my car was -10 degrees Fahrenheit.


Winter’s bitter kiss
Offered with frost covered lips
Stole my taste for life

              -Clarence Holm
