Autumn Equinox’ Color Clock
Blue globe ticks a notch
Greens splash to orange and red
Yellow heat turns down

Once framed with green are now brown
Swans swim a new pond

    Lovely Haiku..all three of them. If i had to make a choice, would say the “Autumn Equinox colour clock” is certainly the best. Love the line..”Green splash to orange and red”. 🙂

      Thank you, Sadje. I saw the swans last week and a red squirrel yesterday that inspired two of them.

    I’ve got grey squirrels. But I did see black ones in Canada… and further north. Haven’t seen a red one in a long time.

    Lovely verses.

      Thank you, Jules. I think this place must be the epicenter of squirreldom.

        It is here too, but I can feel the changes, especially with the light.

  9. Lovely haiku to share the changing of the seasons. Great photographs, as well! I have a good friend who lives in Michigan. He said they have their heat on already. Meanwhile, in Arizona, it will be around 100 F. today. LOL! ❤
