I really loved many of the photographs I’ve seen this week linked to Jennifer Nichole Wells’ ONE WORD PHOTO CHALLENGE: AUTUMN so I took my camera and although it was raining, tried to immortalize a bit of autumn in Arco (TN), the town where I live in Northern Italy.

each drop illuminating

Morning Haiku and Waka – Karumi – February 26, 2015

bitter sweet skies

stormy weather
such a bittersweet sunset
wind whips the trees

the old woman sits
at the mirror reflecting
life’s illusions

ironing shirts
trousers are less fun
on the ironing board

opening the door
that big fat fly bumbled in
open the window

cleaning his room
old toys sit on the book shelves
dusting memories

This post has been written for Carpe Diem Haiku Kai’s Karumi lesson and I’ve decided to submit it for One word Challenge as well for Bittersweet     .
