OctPoWriMo Day 25 – Morning Haiku and Waka – October 25, 2015

through the leaves
the splendour of mid-autumn
no thoughts for winter

even as a finch sings
under the hot autumn sun
winter thoughts banished

glorious autumn
the splendour of gold and red
black and white winter

this October morn
gelid days seem far away
and yet a cold wind
whistles through this valley
speaking of ice and snow
