September Heights: Autumn (3 haiku)

we say summer fades
after Labor Day, but
we still have 18 days

late summer sparks leaves
to shift yellow to orange
branches catching fire

autumn steps lightly
the brown leaves hiding my path
just a hint of fall

About Susan L Daniels

I am a firm believer that politics are personal, that faith is expressed through action, and that life is something that must be loved and lived authentically--or why bother with any of it?

  23. Patti says:

    “branches catching fire” – that is such a pretty and powerful fall image. Here in New England, the red maples and a bush called “burning bush” look exactly like that, as if they’d burst into flames over night.
