Frosty Haiku

Farewell, October!

Bitter Fruit

Frosty death descends
Tomato's yellow blossom
 Withers, fades to brown

Dance of the Ginkgo

Autumn's dance at end,
Ginkgo waltzes on, naked
Ball gown at her feet

I love these - especially the naked ginkgo :)

Perfect descriptions of late October. I especially love the dance of the ginkgo with her ball gown at her feet.

Fab! Sorry I've been awol--it doesn't mean I don't think of you, and am grateful for the facebook connections.

Good ones. And it's so good to find someone who understands the rules of haiku: 5-7-5.
