Autumn Change Haiku.

brittle autumn leaves
rustling wind whispers to me
change dances with us

by James R. Ure


James: I wrote this haiku after my meditation today and I took this picture of the Aspen leaf at my parents house.

~Peace to all beings~

Very nice James! I love it!

This change never ceases, does it? After this, I've got to sweep the leaves off the front porch. Every one as beautiful as that aspen leaf, but destined for the compost bin.

Lovely! Thanks!

Thanks everyone for the compliments.

Pete: Yeah I like bits of tree bark too. It's beautiful and smells good too.

Barry: I think compost is a great, easy to understand example of change and the death-rebirth cycle.

Beautiful and prophetorially appropriate (from the Abrahamic tradition perspective). :)

I've been a fan of Basho for many years, and reading this reminded me of his poetry.

Lovely, James!

G:

I'm honored to be mentioned in the same sentence of that great Haiku master. You honor me greatly.
