fallen (haiga)

Fallen leaves,
needy for fertile grounds
geese honk
naked tree,
defensive and forlorn
squirrel on a wire
besieged by barren trees,
 unwelcome guest

        fruitful and fertile
        there is hope in the scent
        rising in autumn

        stronger in the next chapter
        written in red, gold, and brown


  1. This is excellent – I come away infected with utter bleakness and I like it, like that these words have the power to do that to me – particular volumes are spoken to me in the second and third haikus – the photo is perfect.
