Poetry Friday: Autumn haiku

I know, we’re in the middle of winter…so what am I doing, you ask?

This poem originally appeared on Carol Varsalona’s blog, Beyond Literacy, a few days after Christmas – and although I hope you had a chance to check out all the contributors’ works, I wanted to showcase the poem here, as well. The photo has been going around the internet for awhile, so I wish I knew to whom it should be attributed; I must thank them for the inspiration!

Again, you can view all the poems and photos in Carol’s gallery HERE, and please leave a comment so she knows you visited. And for more poetry and links, please visit Keri at Keri Recommends for today’s Poetry Friday roundup!

  1. Matt, thanks for the shoutout and for your contribution. Think winter now. I will announce the new gallery soon. I am sure that winter where you are looks so different than Long Island. I am writing about the winter chill today.

  2. Of all the amazing photo-poems in Carol’s Gallery, one stood out, so much so that I “had” to call attention to it within my circle of family and friends. That would be yours! Not only is the photo totally compelling, but the haiku is a brilliant complement. If this photo-poem can be entered into a contest, I would vote for it to win! Masterful. God bless you, and thanks for sharing outside the Gallery!

  3. What a gorgeous kiss-shaped leaf! I remember taking a lot of pictures of leaves here in Singapore a few years back – I should probably look into posting them for our Photo Journal – they would make for great poetry prompts. Enjoy winter! We are blessed to have the glorious sun the whole year round in our tropical country. 🙂
