The autumn wind
than the rocks in the rocky mountains ~Basho
Oh leaves, ask the wind which of you
Will be the first to fall. ~Soseki
Along this road
Is none but I
This autumn eve. ~ Basho
in branches dense
with cicadas’ drone —
one autumn leaf ~Shohaku
“But why now?”
You will ask, awake
in autumn night. ~ Nishiyama Soin*

haiku + beautiful fall = awesome post!
thank you…sometimes a haiku’s words create a new autumn.
I run out of adjectives for your posts Brenda – this one is a bit different for you but absolutely beautiful as always. My favorite this week is the street scene – a truly marvelous image. And your haikus are especially lovely and appropriate this time around.
Thank you Tina. The images posted for this week’s challenge were drawn from 2017 posts..”a bit different” is inspirational in that it is a telling that I’m not stuck in a photo rut.
Oh, and the fading flower – sunflower??
Yes…a very tired sunflower
🙂 🙂 🙂
Thank you Sue
A stunning set of images! I love the puddle reflection and the fading sunflower, but the texture of the final shot makes that my favourite of all. And you haikus capture the beauty and wistfulness of the season perfectly!
Thank you for your supportive words
