“A Few Haiku (4)”

(c) 2021 by Michael L. Utley


In the autumn copse
Naked gods shiver as wind
Snatches leafy cloaks



Field work is done
Village sings its evening song
My heart waits for me



When leaves fall earth mourns
And heaven cries; when I fall
Who will weep for me



Autumn earth is dead
Solemn winter dirges mourn
Spring-song resurrects



Skipping stone succumbs
Sinks among indifferent koi
Drowsing near the reeds



Autumn sadness is
Too much to bear; tears freeze from
Early winter’s kiss
