Silence Lies Broken


silence lies broken
stillness split by falling leaves
summer ends in shards

Noooooo! I've not enjoyed my summer yet!

Brian & Tom: I love fall too. It always feels like a new beginning. I think it has something to do with the "back to school" imprints left on my mind years ago.

Jeff: See, that's the trouble with procrastination. Some things just won't wait. Like summer.

I like this picture, how the water looks like broken shards of glass... And the colors of the leaves, reflecting in the water, beautiful.

I love the notion of autumn leaves as summer's shards. Nice.

Janice said...

It's amazing how much can be said with just a few well chosen words. Lovely picture also...

Tina said...

Great haiku. Powerful in so few words. I'm a fall fan myself :-)

So sadly beautiful, may our souls be soothed by the golden brown blankets of fall.

Haiku is my favorite. This is perfect. :)

Thank you for your nice comments, Everyone. I'm a big fan of fall. And it is a great time to wander with a camera. Mother Nature uses her best colors to paint fall here in New England.

and begins the fiery kaleidoscope of autumn...

But not yet. I live in the south and don't see this display, but I grew up in the north and autumn was my favorite season.
