Autumn Haikus

Although I have a business webinar to run later on today, my thoughts are very much focused on a selection of poems I will be submitting for a competition. So here are some poems which will not make the grade, but which suit the season.

Burnt-ochre leaves run

alongside my car. Warm hug

after sleepless nights.


Ghost-white snails clinging

at the end of hot summer:

let go of grass blade


Distant bark of dogs

embrace sun darting through leaves

then pop of shooting!

colourless maidens bustling

in their silver gowns.


Leaves in frost casing.

Darting in the undergrowth –

hoary platitudes.
