There is nothing like an autumn fire it warms the soul for what follows.

I’m surprised you say this is a hard form for you. Especially when you write a beauty like this one.

I must have gotten lucky this time. Paul Callus writes wonderful haiku and I'm trying to learn from him.

Interesting way to go for the contest. If someone dropped a lighted match or a cigarette still burning around here the whole county might burn for we are so dry. We need rain. Thanks for dropping by. Sara

I'm sorry you're having dry conditions now. Wildfires grow quickly and are often out of control. Thanks for reading, Sara.

carolyn, I think the loving arms song was from the 60's. It still has not come to me!! Oh I just looked it up. Guess who? REally, it's GUESS WHO, do you remember them? The line appears in their song "These Eyes."

Yes, I had the Guess Who album with "These Eyes" on it. I believe "American Woman" was also on it and I love that song too. Thanks for reading, Andrea

i love the smell of autumn leaves, brings back so many memories of jumping into fresh raked piles as children, and the aroma of campfires or fireplaces just add to it...lovely haiku, it comes to life nicely :) hugs

Well, the weatherman says it "feels like" 105 degrees this afternoon. Florida joins Texas in long, hot summers. Thanks for reading, John!
