Crisp, clear, colorful autumn has arrived. Trees here in Columbus are just beginning to bloom forth into full autumn dress. A wandering moon graces the night. Here are haiku to celebrate the season.

her father’s

old binoculars

autumn stars


autumn afternoon

he rides

the silences



of the hayfield night

autumn moon


elder dog

at autumn ease

twilight porch commander



of autumn air

the shadowed garden


autumn night

the stillness

of transience


too hot, too cold

too damp, too dry

the seasons humanized


strawberry moon

hiding behind

mulberry ranches


backyard Buddha

little garden peace
