Heeding Haiku With Chèvrefeuille, October 16th 2019, leaves are falling

Dear friends of MLMM,

We are running towards the middle of autumn and we see all those wonderful colored leaves. All those colors look so festive, … and leaves are falling. Autumn is to me the most beautiful season, but also a season full of sadness and loss. Autumn … departure of nature, but also in a spiritual sense … autumn is departure.

The goal for this week’s episode of Heeding Haiku With … is to create a haiku or haibun (max. 250 words) themed “leaves are falling”. That can mean the actual falling of leaves or the spiritual meaning of autumn … departure, sadness and more …

I love to share a “Troiku” on this theme:

walking on the heath
in the light of the full moon
the scent of autumn

walking on the heath
feeling one with a Shepherd
in contact with God

in the light of the full moon
laying down in the meadow
the River of Heaven

the scent of autumn
feelings of departure and loneliness
tears in the puddle

Have fun!

About Chèvrefeuille

I am a Dutch haiku poet. And I am the owner and host of the weblog "Carpe Diem, a daily haiku meme" on Blogger (or Blogspot). I am writing haiku since the late eighties and in 2005 I became an international known haiku poet and in 2011 ten of my haiku were included in a worldwide anthology "Spasms of Light". With that anthology I became an even more known haiku poet. In October 2012 I started my daily haiku meme.
