Autumn Haiku

A chill in the air
Crunchy leaves scattered about
Autumn is knocking

Autumn breezes in
Painting trees with bold brush strokes-
Bursts of color shout

Pretty White Birch Tree
Dressed in yellow for the fall
Sways to the music

Streams continue still
Flowing, running, racing time
Until winter's wrath

Foraging nearby,
Rhode Island Reds complement
The tree's party dress.

Daylight wanes each day
Starlight boasts of longer hours
Meteors zip, zip

Autumn rain drenches
Fallen leaves lie soaked and flat-
Slippery as ice

Nuts drop,drop and bounce
Great prizes for passing squirrels
Watch out, drop, drop, drop!

Sweet Corn harvested
Cornstalks drying, fading fast-
Brittle in the breeze.

Bright orange pumpkins
Growing, thriving on their vines
Shining in the sun

Blustery days shout
Trees discard their leafy cloaks
Shivering trees cry

The sun sets early
Sleeping so soundly and long
Dreams of early spring

The grass wears glitter-
Silvery, frozen, shining
Crunches underfoot

Juncos just appear
Heralds of  a season's end
Snowbirds chitting...snow!
