.Haiku by Adeline

October’s fingers
Slip the golden gowns of trees
To woodland carpet

A curtain of rain
Relentless, daring spume feeds
Into my progress

Miles of black-top loom
Shadows block the burning sun
Semi-trucks rally

    Trees shedding their leaves and leaving a carpet under the trees.
    Very soothing and mellowed write. Rain falling and sometimes the sun
    takes a peek. Loved this.

    the first one i love, the second one i don't understand (what does into my progress mean? ?) , and the third one i don't care for but at least i might understand what you mean (is a car driving down a highway, passing lots of big trucks which shade the car with each passing?) . thanks for sharing. the first one made up for the others.

    A nice series of haikus Adeline. Each one carries a message

    October’s fingers... This one caught my eye the most... you've managed to blend a perfect metaphor into such a few lines... outstanding Haiku

    Haiku-do of yours is so masterly: vivid, alive, metaphorical. I enjoy it – and follow your 'do'.)

    Fall changes entire landscapes.
    Rain’s a part of life that we must deal with.
    And “let the truckers have their day.”
    I enjoyed your haiku very much. Good job.

    These pieces are both simply stunning Adeline and so skilfully written. I am in awe! 10 Karin Anderson
