Fall Haiku

by Maureen Glaude

my old dog
in the leaf pile at night
scares a hare, and herself

crackles first
before trickles
fall morning rain

sighting from the corner
of my rainhood -
the mail carrier in his

rotted fencepost
brown and wet
slants today

cross-bred oak leaf
in my poplar
over the pond

soggy bum
from the picnic bench -
rain overnight

Very descriptive of Fall, it's ambience and impact; these vignettes say so much in such few words.

Lovely...you put me right there in the scene with you.

I love haiku and fall is one of my favorite seasons. These were very well done :-)

Hi Maureen, Very good haiku for fall. After reading some others of your, you make it seem so easy to write them.
