Autumn Rites – Haiku/Tanka – September 10, 2015



in October
the queen of the season blooms
white chrysanthemum

outside the grave yard
vases of chrysanthemums
to brighten the tombs
Italy remembers death
with falling leaves and mums

  1. YOu know, without knowing my stepfather bought Chrysanthemum (pompoms) and I added the roses for the burial of my mother’s ashes not realizing the significance:) I love your haiku and photo, Georgia…truly brings the souls alive as their memory should be kept alive.


in shadows light - walking under weeping pines - spring rain
