11th Official Haiku

grass that used to be green

crackles now beneath my feet

summer slips away


This is what I consider my 11th official Haiku. Looking back, some of the others have been senryu. I have 11 senryu 17 haiku and 2 tanka… so far….

I suddenly have a lot of fall haiku; but I think that is because fall is so easy to write about. And I have recently started focusing on writing haiku. By this time next year I will hopefully have an equal amount of haiku for every season.
