An autumn tau-ku poem from the archives that I hope you enjoy (for the first time or again). 😉

My favorite season is well on the way.

You can read more about the Tau-Ku poetry form here.

I really have to get back to writing more of these types of poems, I just ♥ Tau-Ku.

Have a wonderful, magical early autumn week! 🙂

pause poem

I noted this post in the archives, combining an autumn poem with the photo, that I just posted below this one.

Hope you enjoy the poetic addition! 😉

It’s warm and sunny here in BC.

I was out in a short-sleeved sweater yesterday. What a beautiful day it was! 🙂

Hope the weather is fine, wherever you are.

Have a Glorious Autumn Weekend!

Also sharing this Sunday with Poets United.

A Trio for Autumn, from Haiku Reflections

image003

Gold. Orange. Green. Brown. Red.

Maple leaves in every shade.

Season of splendour. 

˜  

Light through the trees.

Scent of wood fires burning.

Time to close my book.

˜ 

Heading back to school.

Kids laughing! Such carefree days.

Autumn ritual.

˜ 

PS: One of the MANY things I love about eBooks is being able to add some color and photos, without the added cost as in print books. I think it adds to the presentation and enjoyment of any book.

When I recently created a Kindle version of my haiku book: Haiku Reflections, I added seasonal photos for each section. The Autumn one is featured above. The three poems are also from Haiku Reflections.

Wishing you a wonderful weekend. I hope you have some amazing colors to enjoy already, wherever you are! 🙂

Nothing much for colored foliage here in BC yet. 😦 Hopefully soon.

We spent several hours out and about, on Labour Day; walking for miles, taking photos and breathing in the fresh (almost) Autumn air.

My favorite season is on the way!

I hope you enjoy the first “duet”  of several haiku/photos that I will be sharing, with this theme.

Summer may be ending but the magic of Autumn has just begun!🙂

So Good to Welcome Autumn, Once Again!

Poem for Autumn

                                  

Season of splendour.

As Mother Earth gently rests her weary head.

Preparing for the long sleep ahead.

The Stillness:

Harbinger to the winter chill.

 

But for now…

Nature’s paintbrush is busy.

With brilliant palette of crimson and gold.

The forest ablaze with colour.

As the late summer sun still warms the days.

 

My favourite season.

It’s beauty far surpassing the others.

A magical time of awakenings and endings.

Like no other.

A joy to once again rediscover.

 

We are reminded of another year’s passing.

Of changes, inevitable.

Required in all things.

And to everything there is a season,

and a reason we will find,

for all.

 

Autumn.

It’s loveliness and wonder endures.

It’s arrival.

Always a feast for the senses.

A gilded gift we receive.

To dazzle and delight.

 

We put away our thoughts.

Of the cold days ahead.

There is so much to enjoy right now.

Inspiring us.

Autumn’s beauty to behold.

This is a popular poem/topic year after year, based on the stats.

I guess there are a lot of people who love Autumn as much as I do. 🙂
