Poetry Friday: Leaf

We don't have seasons where I live, except hot and a bit less hot, so I always enjoy watching the seasons change from afar.  A friend sent me this photo a couple of weeks ago, and I wrote some haiku to go with it.  
After rough summer,
Bug-chewed, brown spot, scarred by life,
Tough old lady leaf.

Dressed all in yellow,
A beauty in October,
In spite of life's scars.


Which one do you like better?


Here's today's roundup.

I wrote a haiku about leaves today, too, and we do have "leaves", everywhere! I love them both, Ruth, but the first one is my favorite, that "tough old lady leaf".

Hi, Ruth. Actually, I think these poems compliment one another. Why not keep them as a pairing?

Tabatha said...

I'm with Laura -- the two go nicely together.

Ditto...I like them both, and especially "tough old lady leaf."

Tara Smith said...

Here's another vote for a pairing - they seem to belong together.

Even before reading the other comments, I was going to say that they seem like two stanzas of the same poem!
