Autumn - A Haiku Collection

Nithya Venkat enjoys writing about nature and different aspects of life in the form of poetic verses.

Autumn Leaves

Autumn Leaves

shades of blazing red

golden yellow leaves rustle

autumn signing off


can you hear the sound

the crunch of amber rust leaves

soft autumn footsteps

autumn moon

autumn moon

autumn moon floats by

silhouette of tree branches

monsters in the dark


gray naked branches

dry leaves crackle with the wind

autumn bares her soul


the north wind whispers

tales of cold winters past

autumn cold shivers

fall foliage

fall foliage

dressed in golden hues

autumn parading her show

best of all seasons


chill autumn evenings

seeking the warmth of the hearth

in blazing colors


autumn parade float

earth dressed in amber rust hues

red carpet welcome

I do love this time of year. I don't like the return of the rains, but I love the crispness of the air in the evenings and early mornings. I find myself with much more energy these days.

Loved the haikus, my friend. Be safe, be well, be happy.
