Autumn Forest

An Autumnal Haiku Poem


Read the latest poem of mine to have been published in Issue 6 of Scrittura Magazine, which you can find online for free here:

Scrittura Magazine – Issue 6, Winter 2016

My entry is entitled “Autumn”, it is an haiku poem, and can be found on page 35, but be sure to read all the brilliant submissions.

My entry is reproduced here:

Autumn.

Pumpkin spice latte
Arboreal colour change
Plan to hibernate

Harvest festival
Curing, pickling, preserving,
staples for winter

Central heating on
Go dig those warm jumpers out
Time to layer up

On and off weather
Piles of leaves, wellington boots
Rain, then sun, then wind…

Flocks of birds prepare
to escape the looming cold
warmer climes beckon

I could go to sleep.
Miss the winter, through to spring.
Curled up, safe and warm.
