quote:Autumn in Switzerland
River waters moan:
reflections of warm colors
on departing leaves
Thank you for the inspiration for the haiku!
When it was autumn in Eden by Ian Emberson
When it was autumn in Eden
and chestnuts held golden leaves
against dimming light ,
Eve touched her toes on the sodden
soil - ran fingers through harvest sheaves
- feeling all things were right :
and hip and haw turned red - the sloe to dusk
and swallows gathered in flocks with waitful wings....
