  1. And the award for best haiku goes to…….. Lauren!!!! 🙂 I should try to learn from you but I’m not sure if I’ll ever be able to say so much with so few words 🙂

    1. Oh, BlueGem, you are too nice! Seriously, I don’t deserve those words, but I’m glad you liked this one, too! I find it challenging to write these with so few lines and the correct amount of syllables, while still trying to convey a relative message. I love using images with Haiku, also. With your amazing writing ability, of course you can! If I can, you can! (I need a synonym for “can” ) 🙂

    1. Thanks so much, Betty! I wasn’t sure about “melodious crunch” but kept it and I’m glad I did, after reading your comment! Photo credit goes to my son! He thanks you, too! 🙂

    1. Awww…thank you so much, Soma! You are so sweet to say that, even though I don’t feel I’m deserving of your kindness. As I mentioned in another reply, I find these challenging to abide by the “rules” and still be able to convey a relative message…I’m glad you enjoyed this one, too! 🙂

  2. See, just 3 lines and the magic it creates? no wonder I love ur work so much.
    ‘Versatile’ suits u the best..

    P.S. Ur genes are talented too.. Loved the pic!

  3. Wow, Arch, your kind and powerful words humble me! I don’t see myself in that way, but you encourage me to continue, which is very helpful! My son will also appreciate your photo complement! I value your continued support, so thank you again! 🙂

    1. Thanks, VW, When I saw the abundance of leaves in our yard, I was inspired to write something meaningful about autumn’s exit. You are exactly right! Yes, I love nature, as you can see and haiku is one way of showing my appreciation. I’m so thankful you and others have enjoyed them, as well! Thanks again! 🙂

  4. crunching leaves is like a small addiction of mine as I walk. When I see a dry brown leave blowing across a sidewalk I can’t resist stomping it just to hear the crunch. haha, I know I’m crazy…
    Nice haiku Lauren

    1. No, you’re not crazy, unless many of us are! We do the same thing and believe me, we literally had a “blanket” of leaves in our yard, which inspired me! Thanks so much, Scott!

  5. Love, love, love it Lauren!!! you represented Autumn so well in few words. Can’t get the hang of these, I’ll stick with the Hay(na)ku and Limerick and free styles, lol! Blessings and love, Terri

  6. I can just hear the crunch of those leaves underfoot…This is an excellent poem. Thank you for sharing it with all of us here 🙂

I appreciate your thoughts!
