Leaves of autumn

Grace @ Everyday Amazing - beside our house


autumn leaves
cover the ground - soft carpet
of afternoon sky 

~0~0~

cool wind gathers 
pine cones and green needles,
warm bed for winter  

~0~0~

maple tree 
shiver in dress of dying colors - 
she dreams of tulips   



Happy Weekend and Thanks for your visit ~

  9. The tulips will sure be showing after your verse, or at least be wanting to show, through the oncoming crappy snow

  11. Beautiful photo, Grace. This season certainly inspires good poets. The maple tree leaves settle....and yes, there WILL be tulips next spring. The cycle of life!

    1. I just learned the prompt was "shroud"! I hope that death is just as much like entering bed and just as beautiful--but not before the winter of our lives.

  17. I love the photo and haiku. I miss the beauty of fall and its colors.

  18. All these haiku describe the miracles we see in Fall. The same kind of miracles happen with each seasonal change and subtle changes in between those. A lot of things to witness and think about. Very nice.

    Peace
