young leaf
fallen on the wet asphalt -
cruel October

rained leaves -
the park
turning yellow

Autumn is approaching us. But it is quite warm. (+ 10 C, +51 F). Trees know what is going on, anyway; continously yellow, red and brown leaves all over. Winter tyres to be changed soon etc. Preparing to start our warming systems.

some more unused
cones left

Windy autumn -
after yellowed leaves
a lively rainfall

Kawai Sora & autumn

Nobo is a mailing list where many haikuist are sending their haiku, and also discussing what is haiku. Today I sent a comment with a haiku there, and because everyone in this world is not a nobo-member I copy my text also here:

Knowing that a real haiku is something to do with any season, plus, my opinion also something very human, if not just in these lines but around it.

Just thinking Kawai Sora's haiku when he left Bashoo (for several days?!) and could not sleep well, my distant comment:

autumn side
of the mountains -
do you get along?
