Golden Hush


Autumn leaves astir
Whispering their golden hush
Winter’s on its way

Autumn leaves astir
Laughing in the chilly breeze
Thankful for the sun

Whispering their golden hush
Summer work is done
Soon it’s time to rest

Winter’s on its way
Another leaf turns loose
And floats to the ground

  1. Welcome at Carpe Diem Haiku Kai Linda/Abigail. What a joyful troiku you have created. It reads like a song in praise of autumn. Troiku is a nice and creative way of haiku-ing. Hope to see you again here at CDHK.
