Autumn ‘Firsts’

Throughout the woodlands
dry cedars snap like matchsticks—
first loss of autumn.
Fear gripping his heart,
a wayfarer hurries on—
first clouds of autumn.
Autumn’s first full moon—
I catch glimpses of fairies
dancing in the moss.
On the garden path
I keep stumbling on pebbles—
autumn’s first thick mist.
In the dwindling light,
what is there to sing about?
First rain of autumn…
seeming far away
my childhood and its wonders—
autumn’s first cold snap

  1. What a magical story – i hope those wonders catch up with you

  2. We should never be saddened with the change of seasons as it is all about the circle of life and preparing for change. As you wrote the first rain of Autumn is something to sing about as is every change during the year.

  3. i love it when you show up-you fill my soul every time!

  4. Dear MMT, I have definitely stepped into Fall with your haiku! I love them all, but my favorite is the last. For I have realized that I’ve stepped into Fall in more ways than just the seasons…

    Autumn has overtaken our area with Father Winter nipping at its heals.

  8. It’s wonderful how you vividly “paint” autumn with you words! They have touched my very soul! Wishing you a grand weekend!
