Low morning sun hits
tree trunks —- they are luminous
against blue-gray skies.

Day so beautiful
it hurt my eyes. Tomorrow
rains come and leaves fall.

Red, yellow, and bronze
leaves swallow the trees’ greenness.
Soon they’ll all be gone.

A man wades into
the still lake waters, a rod
perched on his shoulder.

Morning swamp walk
brought jays, wood ducks, kingfishers,
and a merlin’s call.

Was a weepy day.
Sometimes fall’s beauty is tough
on a tender heart.

Oh, lovely weather–
it renews my sense of self
and pledge to haiku.

Apple tart–why do
I love you so very much?
Autumn needs to end.

Sun hits the far hill
burning the rime from the fields–
an autumnal view.

Wind’s blowing a gale
ripping yellow leaves from trees
outside my window.
