Haiku My Heart

Autumn-such boldness
To paint the sidewalk with leaves
Dipped in memories!

Autumn is my favorite season.  It brings back memories of cool country evenings with fall festivals and cotton candy.  It was a wonderful time when seasons weren't counted, just enjoyed.   Time seemed infinite.  There is a kind of reverence to fall as it shines light upon  sacred time.

It's Haiku My Heart Friday!  I cannot recall the last time I shared via Rebecca's weekly gathering of  haiku enthusiasts.  Haiku is so fun to create.  If you would like to read more haiku or share your own, please follow this link.  Thanks, Rebecca for kindling the poetic embers!

there are countless reasons to fall in love with this brazen season of letting go. having you return to the haiku circle with your love, light, wisdom and beauty is one more!
fall into the light and share the awe of it!

This is an awesome haiku. I can see it and feel it,hear the leaves crunching beneath my feet, catch the hint of autumn chill. I love poetry that lets me inside the words. Nice one!

I really like the line "Dipped in memories." It makes me think of a deep well of colorful rainbow paint!
