Autumn Poems - A Haiku and a Sonnet

Rinita is a creative writer, with focus on poetry. She delves into several forms including Haiku/Senryu, Sonnets, Free Verse, and Prose.

Background

The beautiful autumn season is here. For those who live in a tropical region, this means the end of months of heavy showers and grey clouds, and the beginning of a new era of sunlight, accompanied by a bright blue sky. Here is a Haiku and a Sonnet celebrating the season and one of its special flowers, Jasmine.

Autumn - Haiku

Dazzling bright blue sky

Cotton-white clouds sailing through

Night falls with a chill

Jasmine - Sonnet

Jasmine, your serene white visage, well-laced

With an orange tint of glow, the sunlight

You come, bloom gently, silver moonlit night

A lover's touch, remain you till the dawn


I yearned for you, and your sweet, fragrant soul

My nostalgic rescue from the dark clouds

Seclusion of years, grim, grey, dim, and grave

Entered crimson dawn, and silent night stole


I pine for you, my sweet lover, Jasmine

Along the night path, fragrance yours, I lost

Your enthralling touch, without an end, gone

The orange turned brown, the white lost its sheen


How could I know, you would return next night

To embrace me in your newly found light
