'neath the chestnut tree flakes of green,cover this scene- autumn blankets me 'neath the chestnut tree conkers* abound,all around- a none-er strikes me *conkers=horse chestnut seeds-provide a schoolyard autumn pastime-wiki or google for more info

You have painted a lovely scene of fall in your Haiku's Brian, just lovely, and I want to thank you so much for my first place win in your Verse contest, I am so happy and pleased and honored and proud today, I wrote my verse about the pond while actually sitting there in the park not far from my home, I guess being in the moment helps us to write better ~~ Love Constance
