There is something magical in fall…
In the air, there is a sense of return to the source. I often feel writing in this season, and among all poetry that I write, I feel closer to those lines that I have written in the fall. I wrote the following 5 Haikus inspired by this season.
The house is hidden
Behind persimmon trees
Beginning of fall.
Let’s open the window,
And look beyond the stars.
The night is short.
On this chilly night.
Left alone, in cold,
Her friends are gone, one by one.
One by one, leaves fall.
Cats sleep, dogs play, mom smiles.
I run out of paint.
