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

thank you anne lise for the very beautiful comment nature sure has a huge force if unleashed we see so many disasters it causes bless you dear friend

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.
