The Last Supper

                                           last supper in FALL -
                                    trees of brownish orange, litter
                                     the earth sweeps the ground

    I am glad I read what you wrote on the bottom that this is about the end of the world. How fitting to make it that topic in fall. Sorry to be replying so late! Luv, andrea

    And this is unique. I like the viewpoint. Unique. Thank you! I am a nut and since it pleased you, I hope the next squirrel gathers me up. Regards and thanks, Gerard.

    Excellent Haiku! I catch the hidden metaphor here, as Christ ate his last supper, he arose after his death three days later. And after Fall has her last supper she also arises from her death again three seasons later. Absolutely Brilliant! You are invited to read mine as well. I only just began writing the short poem.

    Excellent imagery in the few lines of this Haiku. Captured the start of fall expertly. You asked if I had other stories to read. You might check out my website. I have excerpts from my two books posted there "Daddy's Game and Shimmer" as well as a third book I am currrently working on "Shadow People."

    Beautiful imagery, Mitch..a little unsettling..the earth sweeps the ground..but nature does revolt when she has to..sad but true...Peace, Audrey

    Just read your note and wanted you to know I appreciate the spiritual quality in your poems, Mitch. I mention "heaven" often as it helps to overcome grief after a loss to picture such a place. Love, Carolyn

    Very interesting, Mitch. Read your note below and am wondering if the earth truly can sweep away the carnage caused by the wicked. I'd like to think so. Your haiku makes us think! Good work, Mitch, and best wishes for the contest. Love, Carolyn

    "This Haiku is about the wicked people in the word"
