Autumn Haikus

Haikus for Autumn

by

Dr. Darryl Winer


Summer’s green is gone.

Winter’s white is not yet here

Autumn’s color falls down


Rustling leaves the sound

Autumn’s color covers the ground

Joy for eyes and ears


Vivid leaves hold on tightly

Not yet ready to let go

Winter has plans though


Fat furry bunnies

Little bastards ate my grass

Rabbit stew sounds good


Gardens fade to brown

Behold the withering plants

No more tomatoes


Despair, grieve and wail

Carefully tended gardens

Have given their all


School bells ring their hail

The swimming pool’s just a dream

What it’s like in jail


Shorter days, cool nights

Summer’s heat a memory

Winter’s cold a bite


The cold menaces

Threatening, jeering, beware

From two months hence


Falling leaves, forsooth

Summer’s flowers bid adieu

Pine trees know the truth


Five score and ten days

Summer passes with a breeze

Fall holds back the freeze


A harsh horizon

Sun in the rear view mirror

Fall’s glory rising

      I did it all wrong, I go reading backwards the seasons (stoopid me!)

      Now, - I'm a chilling Autumn wind... I have to go back to Spring to get warmed up again! =)

      Aren't the seasons backward where your are? Or are they backward here? Hmmm.

      LOL Doc, you are right, we are upside down! But, you know, we have some funny maps and globes that show the world upside down and where AusLand is, in fact, centered =) But that's just for fun and to feed our outback ego =)

      Hi Beyond-

      Why am I not surprised to hear that? I imagine the entire universe revolves around AusLand, or at the very least the sun.
