A Fall With Grace by PoemsOfDD
No Rules Poetry Contest contest entry

leafage dancers spin
midair to wind ensemble
roses harmonise
tall trunk stands naked
as crimson cloak falls to ground
deep feeding of soil
dead weight lies in heap
as breeze pulls on dry blanket
bed made of soft leaves
daydreaming mind drifts
to scarlet and golden days
colourful affair


Author Notes
After receiving a few reviews, I thought I'd add some notes to say.... this haiku stack may need to be read twice - but its ok if you don't. The second time to read between the lines in case you missed the story within. Some reviewers seem to have.

The post isn't completely and literally about autumn, as you may think. It is all a play on words - including the title - and relates to a steamy and sensual affair that happens one fine day in fall - and guess the name of the woman so missed and fondly thought of?

Thank you for reading my haiku stack.
