autumn winds

Inspired by Frank’s 50th Haikai Challenge, I explore some of my recent encounters with autumn winds. They herald the gradual shift from summer to fall:

~

a subtle coolness

whiffs of air through the window

autumn is moving in

:

the green tarp is gone

did a thief pass by today?

gusts of autumn wind

:

close to heatstroke

cleaning the shed at summer end

I catch a breeze

:

new winds are blowing

autumn into everything

porch chimes singing

A ‘one-bun’ for April 4

A crow navigates savage winds as branches conduct a symphony of snow and rain that scatters waves from gullies out to open fields.

This is my one-bun attempt for Carpe Diem #1402 Daffodils.

“The ‘one-bun’ is invented by Jim Kacian. The one-bun is an ultra-short haibun which has just one line of prose (including the title) and a (one-line) haiku.”

From Carpe Diem Haiku Kai
