mountain’s red leaves –

the setting sun

returns to the sky

when did they go?

all the swallows’ nests


It feels like autumn tonight.

Today is my birthday. One of those big ones.  With a zero on the end.

Even if it didn’t feel like autumn outside, it feels like it inside.

I like autumn, but you know that summer is over and that winter is not far away.

I was reading some haiku early this morning and these by Kobayashi Issa were the ones that lit up on the page.

even the pine tree I planted

grows old –

autumn dusk
