Some Haiku for the end of October…

I love Haiku, and write a lot of it.  Next month I will be posting Tanka, my favorite form.  Hope you enjoy this abbreviated Japanese poetry form.

HAIKU for October, 2008

The clouds flee the sky
Bitter north winds push them far.
My heart follows them.

Fallen leaves crackle.
Sparrow’s add the treble notes.
Season’s musical.

The cold moon shines down
Upon hollow dried grasses.
Earth prepares to sleep.

The frost at morning
Makes the birds plump their feathers
Squirrels add chatter.

The air grow colder.
Soon wool will not be enough.
Come inside- stay warm!
