My Poetic Path

My journey…shared in poems, prose and photos.

The Autumn Leaves (haiku, movie and song) :-)


This is a reblog of an autumn post (from 2015) that I hope you enjoy.

A song and a movie that still comes to mind, this time of year. So haunting and beautiful.

I hope you enjoy my haiku and photo too.😊

The unpacking continues here.Β We have now given away over 120 boxes of clothing, household items,books… to charity, so slowly but surely, making progress.

And today, we are setting up my office complete with new laptop and printer, yipee!

🍁🌾 Happy Week and Happy Autumn!πŸ‚πŸ

We were watching a Joan Crawford movie last night: Humoresque (so sad but wonderful) and this haiku and archive post came to mind.Β 

The Autumn Leaves is a song that I often have running through my mind, especially this time of year. As I mention in this post, it was also a Nat King Cole tune, that my beloved Grandma cherished.

And the movie of the same name is also one that I have never forgotten.Quite a β€œracy” film for its time (1956) and definitely with some disturbing content.

But, if you are a fan of Joan Crawford and/or movies from the 40s/50s like I am, do check this one out.

It also features a young and oh, so handsome Cliff Robertson. Β Also starring,Β Lorne Greene in a role that is far removed from his later, fatherly…

  1. Lovely photo, perfect haiku. I need to try this with some of my haikus, matching up with a photo of mine! Or een better, write one for a photo!
    I write poems that I have matched up to photos.

  2. Thanks Rose, I look forward to your haikus and more photos too.😊

  3. I enjoyed your haiku and photo very, very much!!!
    I tried to write a few haikus but learned that I am not good writing them.

  4. Thanks Kaya! But you ARE a superb photographer.😊😊

  5. The haiku is very seasonal and haunting, one of your best. Love the photo too.

  6. I left a message here yesterday, but it disappeared! I remember that movie, we must be about the same age. Nice haiku.

  7. i get sidetrack when i come here ..for a minute…..I love that banner photo and could just sit and look at it.

  8. wow you have given a way lot – and fun to have a new office.

  9. Thanks Joe, it’s one of my favorites too!

    I watched this movie as a kid and was scared silly by Joan Crawford and also Cliff Robertson, as an adult is just kind of sad and silly at the same time. But I DO love that song. Nat King Cole was my grandmother’s favorite singer. For that reason alone, he has a special place in my heart.

    Thanks Sandy, what lovely comments. When my blogs were more active, especially my review blog, I gave away a TON of goodies. Some very generous sponsors helped me over the years with various giveaways. And lots of freebies for me too. I guess they enjoyed my reviews!!! πŸ™‚

    Happy Weekend!!

  10. PS : Sandy L. I was commenting in reply to your comment, re the movie.

    The other Sandy comment was for the other Sandy. πŸ™‚
