Abbreviated Haiku 1-3

Many of you are already doing the Alphabet Haiku challenge with me on Fridays. Now I’ve decided that on Saturdays and Sundays for #OctPoWriMo I am going to try other haiku forms. Well, some of them may not truly be haiku, but they will all be succinct. I hope you like them. And maybe you will want to give these a try as well. As always, you’ll find the scansion (how to do it) at the bottom of the post.

chatter above me—
treetop songs


pale-pink flowers in autumn—
who knew
