The autumn wind

more white

than the rocks in the rocky mountains ~Basho

Oh leaves, ask the wind which of you

Will be the first to fall. ~Soseki

Along this road

Is none but I

This autumn eve. ~ Basho

in branches dense

with cicadas’ drone —

one autumn leaf ~Shohaku

“But why now?”

You will ask, awake

in autumn night. ~ Nishiyama Soin*

Images of past autumns with autumn haiku submitted for this week’s Lens-Artists photo challenge: colors of autumn

Rapidly tonight my boat floats down the river under a cloud-dappled sky. I look into the water; it is as clear as the night. When clouds float past the moon, I seem them floating in the river, and feel I am rowing in the sky.

I think of my love … mirrored so in my heart. ~Tu Fu*

waiting for autumn…

Compared to last year,

this has even more loneliness —

autumn evening ~Buson (Haiku Master Buson, Trans: Y Sawa & E Shiffert)
