exchanging colors

early autumn . . .
the trees and river
exchanging colors

--

from turd to turd
how simple the lives
of these flies

--

Early but ...

harvest moon
my backdoor
gathers leaves

--

lowering clouds
a hawk
drops to its prey

__I love the: -trees and the river exchanging colors-.
__I may have missed things, but have you ever posted any of your haiku and fine paintings as haiga?

awakened
in this cool ponds night
a goose calls

I like the flies, and it's good to see your back door again.

Hi Warren,

Check out my recent haiga to fit the 1st haiku. It may be a river where you are, but it is a pond near us.

Hi Bill - We've got four dogs that make good use of our back yard, and far too many flies that make good use of what the dogs leave behind. It simply smacked of a rather off-shade haiku. Thanks!

Adelaide - Love your haiga, and that gorgeous graphic. We haven't got much in the way of real fall colors, just hints. Thanks.

Mag - I answered your question in an email - I'm assuming you got it. Thanks very much for your comments, and love the haiku!

Warren... that "round-about" was certainly worth while! {Ooooh, that 53 seconds I used! Wow! ;<)}
__Loved'em all, but one that stood out, in my eye and mind, as the most grand.

Your painting and your words:
- autumn evening
- a crow crosses the sun
- and then the moon

Thanks, War!

Great minds . . . I too like this one the best. Saw it one evening - the crow flying through the setting sun and then the rising moon. Perhaps not an unusual occurrence but struck me as a good haiku. Thanks, Mag.
