Fall Leaves, Cooler Weather Thank the Heavens above!

Autumn Haiku

Leaves blowing away

Like the many months before 

Where did this year go?

I have one here Polly… but not a 575.

Written by Willie BongKY my kind friends from Facebook that I’ve known 10 years who lives in the Philippines. We met years ago on a haiku group on Facebook, and he’s a literal master of haiku and all the forms. He was the one that created the page in the first place and moderated it and it fascinated me so I had to get to know more.

I posted the Haiku I wrote on Facebook and Willie wrote this.

 I’m hoping you all will try your hand at the 5-7-5 fillable free verse pattern as well. In traditional times the Haiku were about nature, but you can write it about anything, if you like, not just Autumn. 

Autumn Rain by Willie Bongky

autumn rain —

the sparrows that chirp

at the grassy ground
