Autumn dance

Rooted flamenco
Maple's gypsy gowns roil with
Fall's impassioned dance
autumn -
whirring of wings
across the garden

green to shades of red
they drift down, we rake, they pile
sweet smell of autumn

haiku poem
this autumn
even the wandering caterpillar

admires chrysanthemums

See all my haiku at think haiku
autumn -
the bare trees

of mount hotaka
