Poetry Friday: Seasonal haiku

poetryfridaybutton-fulllHere’s something brand-new I wanted to share: it’s another poem I’m considering including in my Autumn-themed collection.

I tend to title all my poems, including my haiku – which is technically a no-no, as haiku are not supposed to be titled. So I’m gritting my teeth here, trying not to tell you the title is “Protector.”

Dang.

Oh well, try to forget the title and just enjoy the poem, if you can now…and be sure to visit Katya at Write. Sketch. Repeat. for the complete Poetry Friday roundup!

Winter’s first snowfall
arrives just in time to catch
Autumn’s last leaf.

    So very well done, Matt! I like the idea of the snow catching the falling leaf, rather than falling on it.

  2. I love that, Matt and you are funny! I think I forgot that about titles.

    Perfect little haiku. The personification of snow as a ball playing boy is ever so clever, as you often are. I don’t think it needs the title, though.

  5. What an amazing amount of tension you built into this little poem, Matt. It doesn’t need the title at all!

    Love the haiku! I tend to give mine titles as well! Hahaha! Have a wonderful weekend! =)

  7. Rules are meant to be broken, aren’t they? But then again, I don’t really think it needs the title either. Nice job!

  8. Matt,
    Thank you for bringing the snow fall to me. I’m still thinking colored leaves and enjoying the vicarious scent of wood fires. Great haiku, I enjoyed then light that came into my hands.

  9. Wonderful haiku Matt!

  10. Your piece captures so well the merging of fall into winter.

  11. Very nice, Matt. I like it a lot. Sometimes a title is indispensable (even for a haiku) but I agree that on this occasion, you don’t need it.

  12. This very moment you captured in your poem happened this morning at my house. We had some of our first snow today and there was barely one leaf on the trees in our yard.

  13. Beautiful! A gem of a poem to include in your autumn collection, Matt!
