Poetry Friday: Autumn


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

solitary leaf
swirls and twirls downward
maple beats rock

  1. 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!

  2. 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.

  3. Love the repetition in swirls and twirls downward and then the trump card – maple beats rock. Thanks so much for sharing. Absolutely lovely!
