Falling - A Set of Haiku



old country road
blanket of pine needles
your cheeks ruddy


-------------------


my cold hand
in yours
warm


-------------------


smoke rising
flames bursting
scent of leaves


-------------------


sweeping over
shades of dusk
black crow moon


-------------------


cattle lowing
a song
for autumn


-------------------


cider
cinnamon swizzle stick
hints on my lips


-------------------


crème brûlée,
and the salt in your kiss
delicious


-------------------
