Poetry Friday is hosted at Jama’s Alphabet Soup. She always has something yummy at her site.
Variations on a Theme
fallen maple leaf
the silence of morning
on the river bank
swirls and twirls downward
maple beats rock

Beautiful photo and lovely haiku, Jone. Calmed me right down.
Thank you, Jama. There’s something about the red against the gray that I love.
Maple beats rock! Oh oh oh!!! And that photo is GORGEOUS. Thank you, Jone! xo
Thank you Irene. I was very happy with the photo, a grace moment.
Yes! And for me, too, “maple beats rock” is genius! I posted a Cybils nomination invitation on the NH Children’s Librarians Facebook page. I will see about the NH school librarians next!
Thank you, Diane. I appreciate the feedback. Thanks for posting about the CYBILS nomination.
Beautiful, Jone. I don’t know if it’s in response to the photo, but it seems to be. Love that final line.
Thank you. Yes, I love writing poems to my photos. I may transfer the haiku onto the photo.
I loved, “maple beats rock’ Great haiku. Well done.
Thanks. I was tired last night and “maple beats rock” popped in my head.
So serene and lovely….
What a beautiful photo. There is quiet in this post. 🙂
Beautiful haiku, Jone! I’m particularly drawn to the first one. May I feature you in the Haiku Garden on Today’s Little Ditty sometime? Please email me at Michelle (at) MichelleHBarnes (dot) com if you’re interested.
Love the repetition in swirls and twirls downward and then the trump card – maple beats rock. Thanks so much for sharing. Absolutely lovely!
