Autumn Shawl

Fluttering golden 
brown leaves dancing on air falls 
undressing nature

The wild geese flying 
overhead a sign of peace
winter closes in

Throwing the old peat
keeping a fire burning 
as cold approaches

Love how you depict the falling leaves as garments being taken off. One of my first haiku that I wrote used the term "autumn coat" so it's interesting that you say "autumn shawl". A well put together strand of haiku.

Very descriptive of nature this time of year..I enjoyed reading your Autumn Haiku..I haven't heard any geese yet but I could have missed them since I am not outside very much anymore..I think though it is in November when I hear them headed south..Thanks for the visit to my page..Sara

Great set of Haiku's Liam. I love that, throwing the old peat. I just saw something about burning peat last week and it was very interesting. Coming from Canada we burn wood.
