CD: Summer's Retreat

Carpe Diem #287

Shinryoo (new coolness) 



heat of summer wanes
cooler air brings scent of fall
welcome colored leaves

***

path of fallen leaves
in wake of summer's retreat
inhale the cool air

  1. I would love to walk a path of fallen leaves again. (I used to do that a lot when I lived in Pennsylvania.) The paths I now take are strewn with sand, not leaves! (Thanks for awakening some pleasant memories.)

  3. I can already feel the cool undercurrents and see the changing leaves, and it's not officially autumn yet!

  5. A gorgeous set Maggie in which you paint the departing of summer and the coming of autumn so well, that second haiku is a masterpiece.
