New Year In Autumn: Cinqku

NEW YEAR IN AUTUMN

Summer
Holiday
Just memories
Climb on to school’s treadmill
Heigh ho

Wall Calendar: Shadorma

WALL CALENDAR

Turn over
For another month.
Summer’s done.
Autumn’s here.
Make the most of it; winter’s
Just round the corner.

A Tanka In Autumn

A TANKA IN AUTUMN

Pox on verbiage
All these dragooned syllables
Listen closely as
The sound of a falling leaf
Declares “nothing to declare”

Poetess: Haiku

POETESS

Ageing observer
Leaves replacing butterflies
Means nothing to her

Flight Of Fancy

FLIGHT OF FANCY

I met you in the dappled Springtime
Radiant with blossom and birdsong
Ah yes – But time flies like the wind

We courted through dancing Summer
A passion that fair spanned the skies
Ah yes – But time flies like the wind

Ripening Autumn brought composure
And a deep resounding companionship
Ah yes – But time flies like the wind

And what shall I say of bleak Winter?
Chill reminder that all things must pass
Remember – Time flies like the wind

Remember – While hope springs eternal
Still our dreams will remain mañanas
And fruit flies … They like bananas

Runes

RUNES

This wintry scenescape
Darkness and lightness abound
As for tommorow
Spring, summer, autumn for sure
As for their contents who knows?

Autumn Pause

AUTUMN PAUSE

In between brief showers
Blazing sunlit moments
Illuminate the path
As I hurry along.

Leaf after golden leaf
Attracts my attention.
Should I count them? Compare?
Life is too short for that.

And Then (8a)

AND THEN

Autumn leaves
As Winter arrives
Seems only
Yesterday
Leaves remained firmly attached
As we cling to life

Shadorma November

Seasoned Just So

SEASONED JUST SO

Spring waters flow forth
Now after Now after Now
Summer, Autumn, Wint…

Sweet Autumn

SWEET AUTUMN

Amid fruitfulness
Dissolution and decay
As the nights draw in
