Autumn in my Heart ~haiku~

A haiku about a love once lost one Autumn season


They started to fall

The golden crisp maple leaves

Saying sad goodbyes


Like a love once lost

Softly carved with the season

Remembered once more


Swaying as it falls

And finding a place to rest

To wait for winter


Like a heart waiting

For the smile of tomorrow

Letting go of pain

Hiya, Spy! A very beautiful haiku about Autumn. Nicely done! I could almost feel the slight crispness in the air and hear the dry leaves scattered across the ground.

Mycee:

I've learned to appreciate the art of poetry lately and your poem here is not only one that I found beautiful, but also one that I couldn't help to vote up as well. A wonderful read indeed, that reminds us that Autumn will soon be here. Slowly unleashing the sweltering heat of the summer sun. Thank you for sharing your poetical talent with all of us here on hubpages.
