Nature’s Library – Troiku – November 24, 2015

fall leaves

laying on the lawn
shrivelled tattered sodden leaves
nature’s library

laying on the lawn
the clouds pass over head
illusive beasts

shrivelled tattered and sodded leaves
after the tempest
an autumn carpet

nature’s library
stories to be read and learnt
silent reflections

Reflections – Haiku – November 18, 2015

Padua reflections

reflections
the city lives twice
in the river

shimmering light
dancing moon light on the lake
in shimmering light

among the trees
filtering through the leaves
guiding light

Morning Haiku and Waka – November 8, 2015

red leaves

this autumn day
life blooms from serene waters
Mother Earth

this autumn day
ducks play in the water
a father and son

life blooms from serene waters
in splendour and
shimmering light

Mother Earth
blesses all her children
with serenity

Morning Haiku and Waka – November 3, 2015

in the lagoon
two old boats and fallen leaves
reflections

in the lagoon
an autumn still life painting
puffed up coots squawk

morning walk
two old boats and fallen leaves
speak of winter

golden light dances
trees in shimmering water
reflections
