shades of the season

A Poem by Michael

On seeing Red Oaks in Autumn amidst all the green English oaks. I chose Haiku as the format because it links into the time of year.


Autumn canvas --

  Burning flame red oaks

Warm the heart

Okay, that was a short review but now I'll never se and feel autumn again without thinking of the flame red of oaks warming my senses 😊

haiku is perfect for this thought, well expressed. Autumn does warm the heart, heralding the holidays and crackling fires and big, thick blankets to dive under.
I am a very wordy ( no comments from the peanut gallery) woman but I do love haiku when it is well done. Many, if not most, people really do not understand it.
I live in Southern California (think Disneyland and Hollywood)... our winter fuss is pretty much show. When it rains here, people cannot drive worth a damn and god forbid if it ever snows, life will cease. But my daughters were born in Missouri and I remember white tulips in sparkling snow, a sunny morning after a storm, the day my daughter, Alexis was born. It was breathtakingly gorgeous.
