Autumn Poems

Rating: 4.5
Crisp morning
Walking the dog
The sky blushes with russet light

Burning off
Fire crackles
Smoke curling through the trees

Sun setting
Long shadows
Leaves floating one by one

I love these little images of Australia contained in your poems, they offer the chance to escape from the cold English winter. A truly beautiful poem Alison. Love, Andrew xx

Autumn in an Australian wood sounds as good as it is here. You've created a lot of convincing atmosphere and highly visual scenery in this with very few words - the mark of real poetry Allie!

These qualify as haiku althought most believe it isn't truly haiku unless it follows the established western envisioned version of the 5,7,5 syllabic count, which, of course, is erroneous, but like many aspects of poetry, we're hung up on restrictions. These happen to be lovely snapshot-like frozen moments in time; time per se, again in western culture, a much maligned, linear concept. I found every one of these nature-based pennings to voice your serene personality; and as such, you have taught me to plenty with your calmness. All my hopes, Greg

Autumn in the hills, as a chap I know from Manchester, England would say, 'Aye, it's fookin' maargic.'
